The Master of Science in Business Mathematics is designed to expand students' knowledge of theoretical and practical mathematics, business administration, and computer science. After completing this program, students will be able to use their skills in real-life situations and critically analyze problems according to their particular context and related academic findings. In addition, strong students will be prepared to go on to earn a doctoral title, if they wish to do so.
For this master's program, you need a subject-specific undergraduate degree (minimum 6 semesters/180 ECTS-Credits) or an equivalent degree. Candidates with a degree in pure mathematics must prove sufficient knowledge in business mathematics of at least 30 credits (ECTS). The bachelor's final grade (CGPA) must be GOOD or higher (2.5 German and US systems).
In addition to that, admission will depend on a successfully passed colloquium of up to 45 minutes duration.
Knowledge in a higher programming language is recommended.
You need to complete 120 credit hours to successfully obtain this degree. Please check detail of study units at https://www.uni-jena.de/en/msc_business_mathematics
Corresponding to the special research profile of the School of Mathematics and Computer Science in Jena, the focus is placed on Mathematical Optimization and Stochastics. These disciplines particularly lend themselves to modeling economic processes. The study of business mathematics enhances interdisciplinary cooperation between mathematicians and economists.
Important: Mathematics is the most central part of our Business Mathematics program. Applicants must have a strong mathematical background; they must have at least 100 credit points in advanced mathematics at a Bachelor's level with above-average grades. A Bachelor's or Master's degree in business administration or economics is typically not enough for being accepted.
