Mathematics and statistics are essential to advanced financial and economic modelling, making Advanced Mathematics a natural complement to Economics. Economics subjects will equip you with analytical and statistical skills you can apply to any business or finance role. Core studies in economic theory and econometric methods – combined with a specialisation in econometrics, economics or financial economics – will give you a solid grounding in modern economic analysis.

Develop strong research skills with the Advanced Mathematics degree, which involves advanced coursework and an Honours research project. Potential majors include applied mathematics, pure mathematics, quantitative risk and advanced statistics.
