Have you thought about how rates for a new mortgage loan should be fixed with an interest-rate ceiling or as interest-only loans? In fact it was mathematicseconomics graduates who developed the model used for fixing the cost of such loans. All major companies face complex problems, and many turn to a mathematicseconomist when they do. Mathematicseconomists are experts in designing optimisation strategies, something that requires great theoretical insight into both economics and mathematics.
As a student of mathematicseconomics, you have the option of specialising in a subject within a broad area, including one of the areas of mathematicseconomics in which Aarhus University is particularly strong: mathematical finance, economics, and operations research.
Structure of the degree programme
The MSc in MathematicsEconomics programme is taught at the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Economics and Business. It counts as 120 ECTS credits. Students specialise through course activities and projects and through a thesis. In the first week, students structure their own individual study programme with the help of a lecturer by choosing courses from a course catalogue. The programme is designed on the basis of each individual students academic qualifications, interests, and subjects studied at BSc level. The study plan must be approved by the board of studies before the student can register for exams.
Study trips and festive traditions
The study environment for mathematicseconomics has a reputation for enthusiastic, active student involvement. The social and academic associations at the department keep up a number of festive traditions and organise many events. These include company visits and study trips, alternating annually between trips abroad and trips to Copenhagen.
Job prospects for mathematicseconomists are extremely positive and career opportunities are many. A large proportion of our graduates find work in the private sector. Banks and insurance companies are the major workplaces for mathematicseconomists, with many being employed as problem-solvers in consultancy and telecommunications companies. Planning departments in large industrial or manufacturing companies also represent a relevant job market. In the public sector, there are jobs in administration and planning at universities and other educational institutions, on supervisory boards and in ministries. The degree programme also qualifies graduates for a career as a researcher.
