Brunel University – BSc Financial Mathematics

BSc Financial Mathematics

Mathematics is a fundamental subject that is constantly developing. Yes – it is a discipline in its own right. But it is also the thinking behind countless commercial, industrial and technological activities.

Mathematical models underpin engineering, the applied sciences, computing and many aspects of management today. As a mathematics student you will develop an outlook and high level study skills that will be hugely valuable whatever career path you follow after graduation.

Two-thirds of this course consists of the compulsory parts of our wide-ranging Maths course and covers several application areas – finance, statistics, operational research (how maths can be applied to commercial and industrial problems) and numerical analysis. The remaining third covers the workings of financial markets, and corporate investment and finance.

Career Pathway

The sky’s the limit – career prospects for mathematicians are excellent. Maybe you want to pursue a career that specifically uses your mathematical or statistical skills? Or perhaps you’d prefer a more general career – such as management or consultancy?

Either way you will possess key skills that are highly sought after by business – in fact any industry that uses modelling, simulation, cryptography, forecasting, statistics, risk analysis and probability.

These are some of the areas where a maths degree is highly valued:

  • Finance: banking, accountancy, actuarial, tax, underwriter, pensions, insurance
  • Medicine: medical statistics, medical and epidemiological research, pharmaceutical research
  • Design: engineering design, computer games
  • Science: biotechnology, meteorology, oceanography, pure and applied research and development
  • Civil Service: scientists (‘Fast Stream’, DSTL, DESG), GCHQ, security service, statisticians
  • Business: logistics, financial analysis, marketing, market research, sales oil industry, management consultancy, operational research
  • IT: Systems analysis, research
  • Engineering: aerospace, building design, transport planning, telecommunications, surveying.
