About the course
Mathematics and Statistics with Management offers a broad understanding of general management and will also teach you high level skills and knowledge in mathematics and statistics, helping you develop an outlook that will be hugely valuable whatever career path you follow after graduation.
The programme covers a wide array of subjects, with linear algebra, calculus and numerical methods, discrete mathematics, probability and statistics and organisational behaviour and analysis as early, compulsory areas of study.
This programme will meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught Master's degrees.
Using maths to solve industrial and commercial problems has led to vital breakthroughs for human advancement. Mathematical models underpin engineering, the applied sciences, computing and many aspects of management today.
This course equips you with the skills and techniques you need to develop your maths and statistical knowledge, as well as giving you a sound grounding in key business and management issues and applying maths and statistics to solve industrial and commercial issues.
At Brunel you will be working with staff who are internationally recognised for their state-of-the-art subject knowledge. Maths has links with many other subject areas and we offer a wide choice of exciting courses, each with a different emphasis. These courses include modules in pure and applied mathematics, operational research, computer science, finance, IT and management studies. This structure means that most individual subject modules are not unique to any particular degree.
We are also very active at postgraduate level offering Mathematics MSc courses and research opportunities in many areas. External grants and contracts with industry and government establishments support much of our research – keeping us right at the ‘cutting edge’ and actively in contact with modern uses of mathematics. The result is that our undergraduate courses are truly up-to-date. For example, you may undertake your major final year project in one of our research areas.
