All of those are lucrative options. Banking and teaching are always in demand, or you can continue to graduate school in a STEM field of science, technology, engineering or mathematics.

David Tereshchenko

The NSU mathematics faculty possess a mastery of the subject matter but was also able to communicate it through lectures and fascinating in-class examples. My advice to incoming students would be not to be dissuaded from pursuing more difficult courses – and instead look at your time at NSU as a time of introspection and self-discovery, aimed at shaping yourself into the person you dream of becoming.
