¿Qué aprenderé?

Prepare yourself for a career in the financial markets or investment banking, whilst developing your knowledge of mathematics.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.In mathematics, you will study areas such as calculus, analysis, linear algebra, differential equations and numerical analysis. The course will also cover key areas of statistics. This fascinating subject will appeal to anyone who enjoys problem-solving and wants to hone their analytical skills. Additionally, there is a shortage of mathematical skills in the UK and therefore this knowledge is highly prized by employers.As mathematics can be a challenging subject, you will be given plenty of support to help you get the most out of your studies, including small group problem-solving tutorials and materials to help you manage the transition to university-level mathematics. Additionally, you can get involved with the Department's Staff Student Forums and the Student Teaching and Learning Group, which enable you to have a direct input into the student experience.The finance and investment banking aspects of the course will provide you with practical experience, such as managing multi-asset portfolios using live prices and using the latest investment management technology. The ICMA centre is part of the triple-accredited Henley Business School and is ranked 14th in the UK for Accounting and Finance (Times/Sunday Times University Guide 2017).You will also benefit from our three dealing rooms, which are equipped with Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters Eikon terminals and use the latest industry simulation software. As part of this aspect of the degree you will experience the thrill of a live market – take positions, quote two-way prices and manage the risk of a $50–100 million trading book. A career in the financial markets, investment banking and securities is the first choice for many well-qualified graduates. It’s not hard to see why when some starting salaries can exceed £40,000.In the final year of the degree you can develop your knowledge by exploring areas of interest in greater depth. The vast majority of modules in this year are optional and include subjects from both areas of the course such as foreign exchange and money markets, management of risk, and numerical analysis. During this year you will also carry out a project on a mathematical topic and produce a report and presentation on it.You may choose to carry out a summer placement in an area such as finance or banking in order to gain an insight into industry and gain valuable experience.Alternatively, you can opt to take the four-year version of this course, incorporating a year in industry. Our careers department can give you advice and support for finding the ideal placement, as well for writing a CV and interview skills, by our placements officer.**Careers**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 wor
