From Bachelor to Master
After completing the bachelor program in financial and business mathematics,
you can pursue your studies with a master in mathematics, data science or finance.
Mathematics is a science that uses logic to examine self-created abstract structures for their properties and patterns through logical
definitions. Students receive the sound fundamental training in Analysis and Linear Algebra. In addition, the program is characterized by
the teaching of basic skills in various disciplines of Business and Financial Mathematics (Optimization, Stochastics, Statistics), which
are shaped by their application in economics and finance and are taught over the course of the program. They are essential for the
confident handling of financial products, actuarial mathematics or the modern theory of financial markets. In addition, they enable the
successful handling of problems from economics, logistics, trade or industry, as is common in operations research with the aid of
mathematical modeling. In addition, there is an initial opportunity to specialize a little further in one area. The inclusion of financial and
economic subjects, such as finance, accounting, micro- and macroeconomics, production and procurement management, is a special
feature of this course, which is mathematical at its core. Already in mathematical compulsory modules, emphasis is placed on a clear
reference to applications in finance and economics.

|Computer Practical Training
Mathematics plays an increasingly important role in banking, credit and insurance, in the financial and capital markets, in asset
management, in management consulting and risk management, in production and logistics, in energy supply and transport, in
development and planning departments of large corporations, in market research and in the development of business software tools.
The professional goal of the program is to provide graduates with knowledge and skills that will enable them to enter the workforce as
specialists and generalists in the banking, credit and insurance sectors as well as in planning departments in industry, commerce
(logistics companies, energy suppliers, mail order companies, etc.), the construction and transport industries and the public sector,
software companies, business and management consultancies and as players in the financial and capital markets.
