Our 4-dimensional degree

Mathematics & Operational Research & Statistics & Economics

These are Mathematics degree courses which integrate the study of pure mathematics and statistics with their applications to economics, finance and management. These are core skills required in modern business analytics.

Introduction from Prof. Saul Jacka

The MORSE concept

The first MORSE students started in 1975, three years after the idea was launched at Warwick University, during the founding year of the Department. About 200 students start each year with overseas and European students forming about one-third of the intake allowing our students to form lifelong, global friendship networks whilst at Warwick. The fact that Warwick MORSE and MMORSE are so strongly and widely valued internationally makes our graduates highly employable worldwide.

Admissions Application should be made to either MORSE (GLN0) or MMORSE (G0L0) but not both. Transfers between these two courses is straightforward during the first two years at university (details under Course structure). For more information see under Admissions on our Undergraduate pages.

These two degree courses are nearly the same during the first two years making it easy to reconsider your preference during your first two years at university. Differences become apparent in the final years with a supervised research project and specialisations in MMORSE.
