BSc Applied Mathematics with Statistics

This programme places joint emphasis on both the theory and application of statistics. It is aimed at students who have a solid interest in mathematics, statistics, and economics. The theoretical bases of this programme are mathematics and probability theory, including mathematical statistics and statistical surveys, while the practical element includes statistics relating to areas such as social economy, finance, and management.

Students are expected to use statistical software to carry out data analysis, and engage in the development, application and management of statistics. Applications include statistical survey, statistics information management, quantitative analysis, actuarial insurance, and risk management in large enterprises, public institutions, and within the economy as a whole.

Students graduating from this programme receive degrees in BSc Applied Mathematics with Statistics from the University of Birmingham and Statistics with Economics from Jinan University.
