The new Mathematics Master’s Degree at the Faculty of Business Informatics and Business Mathematics will start in FSS 2021

We are very pleased that we will be able to offer the Mathematics Master's degree at our faculty from the spring / summer semester 2021.

This is one of the few Mathematics Masters in Germany that does not require a minor. During the two academic years, students can concentrate exclusively on mathematics, but if interested, they can also take mathematical lectures in related areas.

With the orientation of Mannheim Mathematics on economically relevant topics in current areas, such as big data or financial and actuarial mathematics, all doors for successful business careers are open with the master’s degree. The cooperation with the student initiative STADS gives students the opportunity to carry out specific practical projects in the field of data science during their studies. The option of acquiring certificates from the German Actuaries' Association (DAV) directly with completed lectures improves job prospects in the insurance sector significantly.

Networking with commercial enterprises and research institutions gives our graduates excellent career opportunities. Many of our students are already recruited by our partners at the annual MINT marketplace during their studies.

Structure of the course

The students are (almost) completely free to design their studies. If it is to be exclusively mathematics, it can also be exclusively mathematics. However, up to 24 ECTS may also be from mathematical lectures in computer science, psychology or political science.

In the first year of study, knowledge of pure and applied mathematics is deepened. The specialization phase and preparation for the master's thesis begin in the second year of study.

The Master in Mathematics is also structured in such a way that interested students are optimally prepared for a possible doctorate.

Facts and figures

The standard period of study is 4 semesters and the course starts in the fall / winter semester (September) or spring / summer semester (February).

Applications for the FSS 2021 are still possible until November 30th, 2020. The admission requirement is a completed bachelor's degree in a mathematical course.

The Faculty's program management team will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
