The international Master's Programme in Mathematics at the University of Jyväskylä is research-oriented and provides students with up-to-date knowledge in one of the core fields of research (analysis, geometry, inverse problems, probability and stochastics) at our department. The aim of the programme is to prepare students for working life, so that they are able to work as experts and developers in their own field. There is also a possibility to continue with postgraduate studies in mathematics.
With a Master's degree in mathematics, one can continue with doctoral studies or find employment outside the university. There is nowadays an increasing demand for mathematicians outside academia. Some typical areas and corresponding mathematical fields include:
- Economics (Finance and Insurance; the international Basel- and Solvency-Contracts): stochastics, analysis (in particular, the theory of partial differential equations), numerics.
- Medicine (image processing): inverse problems and numerics.
- Big Data management in health care organisations and computer science: statistics and stochastics.
- Modeling and mathematical optimization in Biology, in the Energy Sector, but also in small production sites: analysis, geometry, and stochastics.
