This programme trains professional researchers in mathematical sciences and experts in mathematical education. Moscow has long been considered one of the world’s capitals for mathematics, and this rigorous programme is an opportunity to study under leading experts in the field.
In the first year, students construct individual study plans according to their own interests and goals. Under the supervision of faculty advisors, students complete a course project at the end of their first year and submit a Master’s thesis at the end of their second.
Graduates are well prepared to enter PhD programmes, have their own independent research agendas and experience, and possess teaching experience at the university level.
Graduates who wish to pursue a research career in mathematics are expected to continue their training at the PhD level. Otherwise, this MSc diploma certifies a substantial background in mathematics, which will give graduates a competitive advantage when applying to jobs in finance and economics.
