This is a new double major degree hosted by the Division of Mathematical Sciences of the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (SPMS) and the Economics programme of the School of Social Sciences (SSS). Students will learn how mathematics is applied to model economic decisions, make economic forecasts—and, in general—how mathematics is a powerful tool for modelling economic and financial market activities.
The training that graduates of this degree acquire - a combination of critical economic analysis and strong mathematical and computational skills - is highly valued by employers in the financial services industry, business as well as the public sector. The degree is also ideal for those who plan to pursue a Master's degree in financial engineering, professional or graduate programmes in finance, economics, actuarial science or other related fields.
