Course summary

In this course you kick-start your career in the financial markets or investment banking with a paid industrial placement.

You explore key aspects of mathematics, such as differential equations and analysis, and gain practical financial and investment banking experience through Henley Business School, the University of Reading's hub of business expertise. The split between the two subjects is roughly two-thirds mathematics and one-third finance and investment banking. Furthermore, you can gain valuable industry experience through a year-long paid placement at a major national or international organisation.

Placement

Between your second and final year you will carry out a paid industrial training placement, lasting around 12 months. Placements can be located anywhere in the UK, and occasionally take place abroad.

Career

Jobs in the financial markets, investment banking and securities are generally well paid and highly sought-after.

Henley Business School is triple-accredited, and this degree provides a direct route into many areas including accounting and professional services, banking, consultancy, finance, human resources, IT, investment banking, marketing, operations and, of course, general management.

As a mathematics graduate, you can choose to work as a mathematician or statistician for public sector organisations, such as health authorities or the Office for National Statistics, or areas of the private sector including commerce and information technology. Furthermore, you can move into a range of related careers such as accountancy, engineering, modelling, computing or actuarial work.

Alternatively, you can choose to further develop your skills by moving into research, teacher training or postgraduate studies.
