Programme specification:

The programme will aim to:
- introduce students to the major branches of mathematics and management;
- enable students to apply statistical methods to solving management problems;
- meet the needs of students with varied mathematical backgrounds and with different aspirations within mathematics and management;
- enable the student to appreciate the coherence, logical structure, and broad applicability of mathematics;
- enable the student to appreciate the different approaches, concepts and applications in management;
- impart an awareness of the values of research and scholarship in mathematics and management;
- accustom students to the use of tools, including libraries and computers, that are available within mathematics and management;
- provide a thorough training in the intellectual skills and advanced techniques of modern mathematics and management;
- develop the ability of students to abstract and generalize, to model various phenomena, and to interpret numerical and empirical data;
- enable the student to develop the skills associated with problem solving, rigorous argument and communication;
- educate students to meet the needs of employers, including those in industry, education and the public services;
- broaden and deepen the mathematical and management background of students;
- prepare students to work in fields where specific and broadly based advanced knowledge in mathematics and management is required;
- enable students to embark on research in some area of applied mathematics, statistics or management.
