About

Mathematics, one of the most fascinating and intellectually challenging subjects, constantly develops the ways in which we live and think, as it plays a key role in most of today's scientific and technological advancements. Students on this programme not only develop a sound knowledge of mathematics and its application to real-life situations but also build up their ability to analyse and solve problems.

The Mathematics with Business Hons degree from the University of Greenwich presents students with an opportunity to acquire skills, such as logical analysis, deduction, mathematical modelling and calculation, which are valued by most employers. In addition, this programme combines mathematics with business as a minor component. Students on this programme will have one quarter of their studies in the minor subject area of Business throughout their degree.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To provide students with a comprehensive understanding of mathematical methods and techniques, and the ability to apply them to real-life problems
  • To develop students' problem-solving and analytical skills and to provide experience of practical applications of mathematics including mathematical modelling in various contexts
  • To provide training in the use of mathematical software, and an understanding of the application of Mathematics in Business related problems.
