What you can do with a Master’s in Mathematical Sciences

Africa has the youngest population in the world, with a big percentage of them pursuing higher education. However, choosing a Master’s degree to pursue can be difficult, especially when one plans to have a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Due to the many options that make deciding on one specific degree tedious, understanding the skills which are offered by the degree is a big factor while choosing a degree effectively. This concern motivated us to inform people in STEM fields about what a Master’s […]
