What can I do with a mathematical sciences degree?

Our alumni

"My masters in Financial and Computational Mathematics has been invaluable; offering me an excellent combination of financial and technical expertise. The trio of financial maths, computational maths and statistics and machine learning was excellent preparation for the modern financial world.

So far my career has taken me to Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, London and I am now in New York working in a FX Trading Team. Living in Manhattan and walking down Wall St, past the NYSE every day, is something I never would have imagined possible"

Dan Nicholls, Financial and Computational Mathematics (MSc)
