WBS benefits from excellent links to key financial institutions and employers and this course has benefited from recommendations following consultation with the Bank of England, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, and many of our alumni.
You must have, or be expecting to obtain, an excellent undergraduate degree from a UK university, or the equivalent from an overseas university. You must have a strong mathematical and statistics background so a degree in mathematics, physics, or statistics will be most suitable. Engineering may be acceptable if you have completed a statistics module in your second year or above.
