Mathematicians have an especially developed ability for analytical thinking and how to find a structured approach to complicated problems. These are general skills that provide a number of work opportunities.
Mathematicians are highly sought after in the labour market and work with economy and finance, insurance and bank, telecommunications, information technology, engineering and public administration. They also teach and do research.
Mathematicians are often able to adapt quickly to new lines of work, and in a rapidly changing society, this is an important skill.
After having completed a Master’s degree, you may also pursue a PhD in mathematics. This is financed by a university or the Norwegian Research Council, or by international or national research projects.
