Shifting markets and an ever-changing political landscape make for a complex world. Every organisation, whether industrial, financial or governmental, needs to embrace technology and data to maximise what they deliver. Smartphone use, the role of social media data, risk planning, retail patterns... all of these can be counted and analysed. They can also help forecast the future, deciding what to invest in or what route to take. This needs creative, technically competent and business-savvy people; the kind of graduates our MORSE degree produces.
We’ve combined the highly influential subjects of Mathematics, Operational Research and Economics into one coherent degree. It’s ideal if you’re a mathematically-gifted student who wants to use numbers to solve real-world problems in business and industry.
In your first year you’ll gain a strong foundation in mathematics, operations research, statistics and economics. You then tailor your programme, either developing a broad knowledge base or specialising in topics relevant to your future career.
Our departments of Mathematics and Statistics, Economics, and Management Science all focus on applying mathematical theory in a practical context. As well as more traditional subjects such as mathematics, you will learn about business modelling, economic theory, statistics and analytics. MORSE shows how all these skills can come together to create better solutions to intricate problems.
You will graduate with an enviable array of quantitative and analytical skills. These are in high demand by industry, commerce, finance, the public sector, consulting and the government.
