What will I learn?
Accountancy, economics or finance are ideal business majors to accompany your mathematics degree, as you will learn how to undertake the sophisticated economic and financial modelling that is integral to business and government decision making.
Your mathematics degree will prepare you for a career in finance, investment, information technology, environmental management, health, marketing, logistics, defence, media, education and research. Graduates are highly valued for their analytical and problem-solving skills. Development of skills in communication, problem solving, critical thinking and teamwork form an integral part of the course.
Combining business and mathematics offers diverse and sustainable career opportunities. Your mathematics degree will prepare you for a career in finance, investment, information technology, environmental management, health, marketing, logistics, defence, media, education and research. In the business component of this double degree, you will gain broad-based business knowledge and skills that will prepare you for any business role, along with the specialist skills and knowledge in your choice of business major. Graduates may find employment as accountants, advertising professionals, finance consultants, economists, human resource managers, international business specialists, managers, marketing officers, public relations officers or risk managers.
An economics major may be useful to chart a career in actuarial areas of insurance and superannuation, although further study is required in order to qualify as an actuary.
A key role of accountants is analysing and interpreting financial data to provide business advice to clients, and the quantitative skills in the mathematics degree enhance this process.
Advanced statistical analysis skills may assist marketing professionals while knowledge of logistics can assist managers in a wide range of industries.
The financial sector employs qualitative analysts to optimise returns in both the short-term and long-term, trading and pricing derivatives, to analyse quantitative risk, and work in investment strategy.
