Mathematics - Elective


This elective course is based on the Master's course GRA 6035 Mathematics, and is intended for students at the programme Bachelor of Data Science for Business, aiming for admission to the Master of Data Science for Business.

The language of mathematics is extensively used to analyse problems in business, economics and finance, and mathematical models, theories, and methods are extensively used to solve problems. The mathematical requirements of students in Business Analytics go beyond the material usually taught in other undergraduate courses, and this elective course will teach the student more advanced mathematical models, theories, and methods. Topics include linear algebra and matrix methods, optimisation in several real variables, differential and difference equations.
