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 to solve them.
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.
Specialisation and Study ProgrammeThe MSc in Mathematics–Economics is taught at the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Economics and Business. Students specialise through course activities and projects and through a thesis.
Students structure their own individual study programme in consultation with a lecturer. The programme is designed on the basis of each individual student’s academic qualifications, interests, and subjects studied at BSc level. Read more about the different tracks over the page.
Student LifeAs a student on the programme, you are based at the Department of Mathematics and at the Department of Economics and Business Economics. You therefore have the unique advantage of benefiting from the facilities of both departments.
The Department of Mathematics has its own canteen, computer rooms, library, and study areas shared by students. As a Master’s student, you will be given your own desk in an office shared with other Master’s students. The department also has a number of student organisations such as Euler’s Friends, the Kalkulerbar or Friday bar, and the mathematics–economists association (the MØF) through which academic activities, study trips and social functions are organised.
The Department of Economics and Business Economics has nearly 600 study spaces, a large canteen, and state-of-the-art high-tech facilities to meet students’ needs.
Job prospects for mathematics–economics graduates 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, with many graduates working as problem-solvers in
consultancy and telecommunications companies. Planning departments in large
industrial or manufacturing companies are also a relevant job market.
