Year one is an opportunity to study key mathematics topics such as calculus, mathematical analysis, numbers and vectors, probability and statistics, and financial mathematics. You will also take introductory courses in financial accounting, management accounting and economic theory.
The second year builds on the knowledge gained in the first year, exploring more in-depth units in accounting, statistics, economics and financial mathematics. You will also be permitted a free choice of optional modules which may include discrete mathematics, microeconomics, numerical analysis with computation, statistical methods and environmental statistics.
Approximately one third of your final year will be spent on banking and finance modules. Otherwise you will be able to pursue your specific interests through a wide range of optional units including applied economics, international trade, behavioural finance, auditing, international business finance, corporate governance and actuarial mathematics.
