Aston University, Birmingham has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Our four year BSc Joint Honours Business and Mathematics course with an integrated placement year, provides a balanced blend of basic mathematical techniques, a rigorous examination of their validity, the development of underlying structures common to a number of concepts and the application of mathematics to solve complex problems that arise in the real world. We reflect the awareness of the excitingly complex patterns and systems that can arise from simple mathematical ideas. Throughout the course, you will learn differential equations vital to the modelling of many real problems, the underlying concepts in analysis and algebra, the benefit of research into chaos and the development of mathematical techniques as we know them today. Additionally you will deepen your understanding of how businesses operate and you will recognise and analyse the economic, technical, financial and social parameters within which modern managers make decisions. During your final year you will select your modules and specialise in an area of particular interest. Students taking our business or maths Joint Honours courses have had considerable success in finding relevant, lucrative employment in areas such as business management, accountancy, actuary, research and development, teaching and IT. Our recent graduates are now working for organisations such as IBM, Deloite, Bank of New York, BAE Systems, Ministry of Defence, British Airways, Grant Thornton, British Energy, KPMG, Transco, Xerox, NHS, Mori, Baker Tilly, Severn Trent Water and The Environment Agency.

Maths & Business students take 120 credits of modules per year, 60 from business modules and 60 from maths modules. A 10 credit module comprises approximately 100 learning hours and has up to three contact hours per week. The first two years deepen your understanding of how businesses operate and how to recognise and analyse the economic, technical, financial and social parameters within which modern managers make decisions. During your final year you will select your modules and specialise in an area of particular interest.In the first year, your studies incorporate an expansion of A Level mathematical techniques. The final year allows you to choose specialist options to change the emphasis of your degree programme. Over the course of your degree you will consider: differential equations, which are vital to the modelling of many real problems; the problem of obtaining approximate solutions to those questions which cannot be resolved by analytical mathematical methods.
