I love my programme. In the Master of Population and Development, I feel like I learned how the world works, and so many things that I have seen around the world make more sense to me now. I also love our professors.

Career Opportunities

The need for graduates from Mathematical Faculties at the global labour market cannot be underestimated, so a full range of positions in different intellectual spheres is on offer. Although Mathematics itself does not provide knowledge in economics, for example, the course will help to develop skills in doing systematic analysis and designing strategy.

This means that a mathematician who has gained extra experience in some unrelated field (e.g. in economics) will be more efficient and demanded in the labour market than a graduate specialist in this field (e.g. economist) who had Mathematics as an additional subject during his years of study. These preferences of employers have been proved by many international companies. Thus, a degree in Mathematics can serve as a competitive advantage over other job seekers and the following courses can provide our students with it:

  • Data Science
  • Statistical Modelling and Actuarial Science
  • Data Analysis in Biology and Medicine
  • Information Security
  • Logistics
  • Machine Learning
  • Software Engineering
  • Corporate Finance
  • Economics
