    hey guys,

    I've got an offer from warwick for management and have several questions:
    how quantitative is the degree ( with the modules) ?
    is it possible to do a year abroad or do I need to switch to international management?
    Are there many people who get into IB / consultancy?

    cheers

    find some management students on linkedin and ask them how they've found it. i know the user glebp studies it there so pm him

    WBS student here.

    1) Most WBS degrees share the first same year. Thus, the divergence of maths based modules becomes apparent in year 2, between degrees such as A&F and Management/Int Mngmt. Currently, Im a first year student at WBS studying Management, so I can shed some light for you. Maths during the first year isn't difficult, and I haven't done A level maths. We have a quantitative methods module, which is basically stats and probability. We work with things such as binomial/poisson distributions, time series, linear programming, multiple regressions etc. The lectures are recorded and are digestible for someone who never done A level maths but is comfortable with numbers. The second most quantitative module is financial management. It isn't that difficult, just need some practice. We do things like measuring asset risk using the co-variance between market indexes and assets, calculating the beta value and such. Year 2 you can pad your degree with soft modules or more mathematical, as you prefer.

    2) Yes, its possible, with normal management or you can easily switch. I switched from international to normal.

    3) Many people, indeed. WBS is very strong when it comes to financial services.
