Mathematical Science

Here’s a statistic you’ll like: In 2018, 30 percent of the highest-paying college majors were math programs.

Worldwide, companies need advanced mathematicians to collect, analyze and model data.

That’s why our Mathematical Science degree is rooted in both theory and practice. You’ll learn calculus, fractals and trigonometry, and then you’ll practice real-world applications, like pricing and environmental management. You’ll gain the analytical skills and quantitative tools needed to work in a range of in-demand fields, from air traffic control to robotics.

Every Mathematical Science major must complement their program with foundational business studies, leading either toward a minor or a second major in Business Studies. This ensures you leave Bentley with broad business exposure, in addition to sophisticated mathematical skills.
