Mathematicians work predominantly in companies in the insurance and credit industries, for manufacturers of data processing technology, for software companies as well as management consultancies and market research institutes. As business mathematicians (and after further training as actuaries) they work for insurance companies, banks, building societies or professional pension institutions.

In the course of technological development, new fields of activity arise in areas such as biotechnology or medical technology. There are also employment opportunities in the public service, especially in statistical offices and authorities as well as at universities.
