New applications of mathematics are constantly being discovered and established techniques are being applied in new ways and in emerging fields. The MS in Applied Mathematics (MSAM) program in the Department of Mathematics is growing steadily, serving students from the region and worldwide. Our curriculum is designed to address the needs of those who are seeking to enter or are currently working in a variety of applied math careers, such as financial service and investment management firms; data science and high-tech firms; computer information and software firms; and academic institutions and research institutes.

Capitalizing on Northeastern University’s proximity to many high-tech, financial, and research organizations, courses are developed and taught by professionals with expertise in state-of-the-art mathematical and computational practices. Courses meet in the evenings to accommodate our student’s busy schedules. Students are encouraged to take up to two courses outside the mathematics department, providing the flexibility to create a curriculum tailored to their career interests. There is an optional internship program for course credit and an optional co-op program.


The hallmark of a Northeastern education is its Cooperative Education Program, and the Applied Mathematics and Operations Research programs are pleased to offer an optional co-op experience for its master degree students.
