Why take this course?

The BSc Business Statistics is a three-year program that is aimed at mathematically able students who are interested in a career in business or in applying statistical techniques. The Institute of Actuaries has recommended that students who complete this degree program with good performance may gain exemption from up to three of their professional examinations.

The programme philosophy is to develop a firm foundation in mathematical, computing, economic and business skills in year 1. These themes are further developed in compulsory modules during year 2. Students will choose additional modules from an option range to deepen their knowledge of business, economic and computing skills. In year 3, students will be given the opportunity to strengthen their knowledge in mathematics and business whilst undertaking a significant project in applied statistics.

Statisticians are in high demand by employers in most areas of commercial business, government, industry, finance, company administration, research and IT.

In the first year, the programme offers the same modules as found in the BSc Actuarial Science degree. One of the benefits of this is that business statistics students who perform well can apply for exemption from some of the Institute of Actuaries professional examinations. Subject to space on the actuarial science course, top students may alternatively be able to transfer to Actuarial Science.

Contact time

Students have on average 15 hours of contact time per week with teaching staff through lectures, laboratory sessions and seminars, though this may vary depending on module choices. Additionally, students should allocate at least 25 hours per week for study, coursework assignments and projects.

Career opportunities

This degree programme would give students the opportunity to prepare for a well paid and well respected career as a business statistician. A student successfully completing the course should have no trouble in finding a position as a business statistician in the financial sector or could pursue a career in management.
