Hello, Math geeks. Chances are that if you’re studying maths in your graduation then you’ve probably heard about doing masters or go for teaching as a career option after graduation.

Well, that’s no it. Here are some more career options you can opt which demand a command over maths in your graduation:

  1. Military Operations


    Mathematics degree would also allow you to work in the military sector. Scientists are always required to work with military and development (DRDO, ISRO, NAL, SETS, etc.). You can also join the navy as a Commissioned Officer in their education or logistics branch.

    If you want to work in the private sector, you can look at these profiles. Data analysis (or Big Data sector) is going to be extremely popular in the coming years as all business will use data as the core of decision making. You can undergo various online or classroom courses to deeply learn data analytics.

    Operational analysis and project development profiles also require various math and excel skills and recruiters generally look for students from maths/stats background.

  1. Astronomy 
    You are eligible for a career in Astronomy after the completion of B.Sc with majors in Mathematics.

    We’ll recommend this for students who have a good knack for both physics and maths as physics also plays an important part in your job profile. However, if you want to apply for a senior level position then you might wanna get a PhD first.

  2. Actuarial Sciences

    Well, it’s a no-brainer for Maths (H) and Stats (H) students. Actuarial science is a great field. It pays you really really well. But you might wanna consider the low result percentage, tough exams and small amount of jobs in this area.

    Still, if you love data and think you’re can take a step further than what is taught in graduation then you can opt for actuarial exams. If you pass enough exams, a great hefty paying job is waiting for you in India as well as abroad.
