Mathematics, Statistics and Business Analysis

University of Strathclyde


Mathematics and statistics are used in business every day. The analysis of how business works, how data can be effectively used and how we can optimise business practices are all examples of where the use of mathematics and statistics can help business to be more successful and they are all important aspects of the science of management.

This area, management science, is also known as operational research (OR) and is concerned with applying quantitative techniques and the modelling of business problems to management decision-making and planning.

Our joint degree, offered in collaboration with Strathclyde Business School, bridges the gap between management science, mathematics and statistics.

You'll have the opportunity to develop mathematical and statistical expertise at the same time as broadening your skills base in an award-winning Business School.

The course emphasises the great applicability of mathematics to solving practical problems meaning that you'll learn the skills that employers need.

Our flexible degree structure enables transfer between courses and there are opportunities to study abroad.
