Career opportunities are unlimited for mathematics majors. They may pursue graduate education, career paths in business, science or technical fields or disciplines such as social services, economics, education and government. Studying Mathematics helps you develop skills in logical thinking, problem-solving and decision-making, which are valued by employers across many job sectors.
As per IISc, “This is the golden age (as far as job opportunities are concerned) for Masters and Ph.D. degree holders in Mathematics. For those inclined towards a research career, many positions are available in research institutions and universities. For those who wish to pursue a teaching career, well-paying teaching positions are available in plenty in private engineering colleges. And for those who are willing to apply mathematics to practical problems, there has been a dramatic change in the job scene over the past few years in India and abroad as well. Many financial services companies, research labs of multinational companies and others are agressively recruiting mathematicians. The salaries offered are better than those offered to IT graduates. Students trained in pure mathematics are also actively recruited by these industries since almost all branches of mathematics are useful to them”.
