BSc Mathematics, Statistics and Business

Dive into the real-world applications of maths and statistics in business. Complete practical projects, with opportunities for internship in the City.
BSc Mathematics, Statistics and Business at LSE



The BSc in Mathematics, Statistics and Business provides a thorough grounding in the practical application of mathematical and statistical theory in the business world.

Taught in a supportive and friendly department, you’ll study an incredibly broad range of topics covering maths, statistics, economics and accounting in your first year. From the second year, you can tailor your studies to suit your interests and career aspirations by choosing one of the following pathways:

  • applicable mathematics
  • applied statistics
  • actuarial science (courses are identical to those in the BSc Actuarial Science)
  • economics
  • finance
  • accounting.

You’ll get stuck into practical projects – helping to develop your problem-solving and communication skills. Many of our students also complete internships in actuarial and financial firms or placement companies during their degree – providing invaluable workplace experience and providing the edge over other graduates.

Several courses also provide exemptions from professional examinations from the Institute of Actuaries.
