Why Earn a Master's Degree in Applied and Industrial Mathematics?
This Master's degree program prepares you for careers in industry, government and
academia. Graduates go on to careers in fields such as operations research, stochastic
modeling, financial data analysis and statistics.
The program offers broad knowledge of applied mathematics with an emphasis on mathematical
modeling, numerical computations, chaotic dynamics, queuing systems, financial systems
and statistical analysis.
You’ll select one of two tracks focused on a high-demand area in business and industry:
differential equations/optimization track
applied statistics/mathematical finance track
