Course description

This is a dual honours course run by the Sheffield University Management School and the School of Mathematics and Statistics.

Your time is split equally between the two subjects. You'll get a good grounding in both, which opens up all kinds of career possibilities from human resource management to meteorology.

The maths side of the course includes some applied mathematics, and probability and statistics, but you don't need any prior knowledge of these subjects.

You'll learn the basics of business management, including management information systems, marketing, organisational behaviour and strategy.

Optional business modules cover topics such as consumer behaviour, industrial relations and international business.

School of Mathematics and Statistics

From geometry to probability, our courses cover all aspects of mathematics, pure and applied. With modules in finance, engineering and medical applications, we showcase the wide-ranging relevance and importance of mathematics.

As well as our straight Maths degrees we give you the opportunity to do something a little different. You can decide to study abroad for a year or see how maths fits in with other subjects.

Student profile


"I knew the course offered a lot of different modules that would allow me to experience different types of industry. You couldn't ask for a better place to come and study. In Sheffield you're very central - everything is very accessible."

David Morrison
Sheffield University Management School



"My advice would be... do a bit of research about the course, find out if you want to do economics and just go there with an open mind and be enthusiastic about the prospect of learning."

Elizabeth Gear
