There are numerous PhD Mathematics programs located at excellent universities across the globe. With a PhD Mathematics, professionals have excellent career opportunities in academia, research, engineering, economics, government, and other public and private sector jobs.

Curriculum for a PhD Mathematics program is challenging and generally includes coursework, seminars, teaching, and research. Research is conducted under the guidance of a supervisor and must be on an original topic resulting in a doctoral dissertation. The PhD Mathematics candidate must defend the dissertation in front of a panel of experts. Generally, PhD Mathematics programs take between 3 and 5 years to complete and although requirements differ depending on the academic institution and specific program, candidates must have the appropriate educational background, training, and experience in mathematics.

Mathematical modeling is the process of developing mathematical descriptions, or models, of real-world systems. These models can be linear or nonlinear, discrete or continuous, deterministic or stochastic, and static or dynamic, and they enable investigating, analyzing, and predicting the behavior of systems in a wide variety of fields.
