    Description

    This degree equips you with the knowledge and skills to apply mathematics and statistics in the business world, and is excellent preparation for a career in banking and finance.

    You spend two thirds of your time studying mathematics and statistics, and one third studying topics in accountancy and corporate finance in Newcastle University Business School.

    Alongside core modules from our mathematics and statistics programmes - such as calculus, probability and differential equations - you will take specialist topics with financial applications - such as financial modelling and stochastic calculus.

    This is complemented by corporate finance modules, including interpreting company accounts and international finance management.

    Quality and ranking

    Mathematics and Statistics at Newcastle achieved an impressive 92 per cent overall student satisfaction score in the National Student Survey 2013.
