Programme Description

The programme is designed for students who wish to study Mathematics at degree level, but also see their future in a managerial role especially in the finance sector. The mathematics modules follow many of the same modules as the straight maths programme (G100) but the additional management modules help introduce students to topics that they may need when managing a business.

Students can also ask to take extra modules (for “additional credit”) or modules outside the department. Students on this programme may want to use this option to further their interest in other business related fields.  Some details are included below, but this should always be discussed with, and agreed by the programme director

First Year

First semester

Compulsory modules: 

4CCM111a Calculus I 

4CCM113a Linear Algebra and Geometry I

4CCM115a Sequence and Series

Other options may also be permitted subject to the agreement of the Programme Director and timetable issues.

 

Students may also take a language module in addition to their standard programme requirements. Please see the Programme Extras page for details. The additional module may be at any level, so long as it is considered appropriate by the Modern Language Centre.

Alternatively, a language module of level 5 or above can be taken in the place of one of the standard options. Students need the permission of their Programme Director for this and are allowed to take a maximum of 30 additional credits (normally two extra modules) during their whole degree programme.

 

You may, subject to the approval of the Programme Director, also take modules at other colleges of the University of London - normally no more than two modules

Please note however that should you select Intercollegiate modules and fail them, you may not be able to re-sit them until the following year in accordance to other colleges of the University of London rules and regulations.
