The wide range of employment opportunities offered by the master's degree in mathematics includes both theoretical research and practical applications: for instance in banking, insurance companies, enterprises, either in finance or industry, national and international. Because of such international approach, lessons are held in Italian as well as in English. The University of Padua therefore gives you the freedom to customise your education by offering the opportunity to choose between a "General" curriculum, delivered in Padua, and an international learning path - "Algant" - through which you may achieve a double degree, in collaboration with foreign universities such as Paris XI, Bordeaux, Leiden and Concordia-Montreal.

Characteristics and objectives
This course provides a broad range of specializations in the area of mathematics, either in general mathematics or in the branches of applied mathematics, and relies the scientific and professional contacts established by the teachers. Different paths of studies are possible, however formation tends to emphasize the methodological issues in any field, in order to avoid the obsolescence of the skills acquired. The Master's curriculum requires that any student acquires in-depth knowledge of current methodologies related to one or more specific areas of mathematics and that he shows the competence achieved through an extensive work of preparation of a final essay. This final work represents almost a third of the overall commitment.

Occupational opportunities
The professional opportunities for the graduates in mathematics, physics and sciences are wide. In particular, the opportunities for mathematicians range from research, dissemination and application of mathematics to the collaboration in teams with experts of different fields, contributing with their specific expertise and methodology to the mathematical formalization and resolutions of problems in economics or industrial applications.
Their contribution is particularly sought in areas that require a scientific methods of investigation and good understanding of mathematical tools such as, for example, modelling and analysis of complex systems. Thanks to their training, Mathematicians are able to deal with problems in a logical, analytical and creative way as well as they are able to adapt their knowledge toward new situations and to apply new ideas.
