About this course

This is a new combined degree jointly offered by the Division of Mathematical Sciences in the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences and the Division of Economics in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences.

The training that graduates of this degree acquire - a combination of critical economic analysis and strong mathematical and computational skills - a highly valued by employers in the financial services industry, business as well as the public sector. The degree is also ideal for those who plan to pursue a Master's degree in financial engineering, professional or graduate programmes in finance, economics, actuarial science or other related fields.

Graduates with a combined degree in Mathematics and Economics will find they have more career options, in addition to jobs traditionally available to either mathematics or economics majors. In general, graduates with inter-disciplinary degrees are increasingly valued by employers. The combination of mathematics and economics, in particular, provides them with a distinctive edge because of the quantitative and analytical skills the training instills.
