DescriptionHave 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 mathematics–economics graduates who developed the model used for fixing the cost of such loans. All major companies face complex problems, and many turn to a mathematics–economist when they do. Mathematics–economists are experts in designing optimisation strategies, something that requires great theoretical insight into both economics and mathematics.
As a student of mathematics–economics, you have the option of specialising in a subject within a broad area, including one of the areas of mathematics–economics in which Aarhus University is particularly strong: mathematical finance, economics, and operations research.
Job prospects for mathematics–economists 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 mathematics–economists, 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.
