Major

Data Analytics and Operations Research

Bachelor of Mathematics

Data analytics and operations research are both rapidly growing disciplines that use a range of mathematical, statistical and computational approaches to big data.

This major applies scientific information and decision-making to business management. You'll also learn the skills needed to analyse large and complex data sets and to make effective decisions.

This major will prepare you to work in a range of roles in financial services, technology, engineering, science and research.

You may choose to combine your major with a minor in bioinformatics, computational science, computer science, physics or statistics.
