Course summary

Want to take your maths to the highest level while learning how to apply it to the world of accounting and finance? This degree is the perfect balance of theory and practice. Whether you become a banker, an accountant or a quantitative mathematician, your studies will equip you with the advanced mathematical and statistical techniques needed in the City of London and beyond.

Your third-year industrial placement allows you to gain priceless business skills. You will also have the chance to see how well academic theories work in real-life situations.

How do you build a strong investment portfolio? Or calculate financial risk? You will study investor decision-making, reporting and market analysis. You’ll also learn the key elements of relevant mathematical areas such as calculus, probability and statistics.

This course is accredited by British accountancy bodies, providing graduates with exemptions from certain professional examinations. This means, on graduation, you’ll be further along the Chartered Accountants route than many of your contemporaries.

Your degree starts with subjects including calculus, algebra, probability and statistics. We will teach you the foundations of economics, accounting and finance. You will analyse data from real companies to develop your financial reporting skills.

The second year builds on your mathematical knowledge as well as introducing you to statistical computer programming. You’ll also study auditing, financial accounting, management accounting and finance.

You’ll be supported in securing a third-year placement with companies such as Deloitte, Lloyds Bank, PwC and Samsung. Roles on offer range from finance, auditing and accounting to operations, consulting and risk.

Our graduates leave equipped for a working life of teamwork, equations and algebra. Their analytical ability, logical thinking and project management skills are highly prized in banking, management and consulting.

Careers

The skills you develop in your subject areas will open up exciting careers in accountancy, management and finance-related fields of work. You may choose to follow in the footsteps of many previous Lancaster graduates who have gone straight into professional accountancy with a training contract at a professional firm. Alternatively, you may prefer to use the transferable skills you gain - such as analytical ability, logical thinking and project management - to successfully enter a career in fields including banking, general and financial management and consulting.
