The MORSE scheme at Lancaster is specifically designed for numerate students wishing to pursue careers in industry, commerce, finance and the public sector. It provides knowledge and key skills in areas that are in great demand and emphasises the application of those ideas in the real world. The programme aims to equip students with competencies in a variety of quantitative and analytical subjects. Creating strong foundations in mathematics, operations research, statistics and economics in the first year of study the programme then allows you to tailor your personal programme, whether this is by developing your knowledge in all areas or specialising in those topics that you see as most relevant to your future career. These might be in pure mathematics, statistics, business analytics, economics or management topics. Your third year is spent on an industrial placement, giving you practical experience of a work environment and allowing you to apply and refine the skills and knowledge acquired in the first two years of study.
