With this master the students get an advanced training in mathematics, mainly devised as an introduction to doctoral researching ("researching" itinerary), but which may be useful to students looking for a job in business and finances. In particular, it is the natural way to access to the University of Murcia Doctoral Program in Mathematics. To this aim five different specializations can be chosen (each consisting of 36 credits), to be completed with 24 credits from the rest of specializations. In fact, there are no compulsory subjects in the syllabus, hence the student is free to devise the most appropriate itinerary  to his/her interest.

A novel feature of this master is that the students have the opportunity to simultaneously study the UMU Teacher Training Master (specialization in Mathematics) so that they get both titles after passing, respectively, 36 credits from the first one and 52 from the second one.

Semester 1 goes from September to January, semester 2 goes from February to June.
