This is the best time ( as far as job opportunities are concerned) for Masters and PhD degree holders in mathematics. There are various institutes offering math education and research of world repute in India. Typically the road to an education in math starts after passing class 12. After passing 12th , an aspirant has an opportunity to either go for a BSc degree or an integrated MSc degree or a BS degree or an integrated MS degree.




The two best places in India offering a Bachelor's degree in math are the Indian Statistical Institute, Bangalore and the Chennai Mathematical Institute. Indian statistical institute offers a Bachelor of Math degree and admissions are held after a tough screening test at various centers of India held in late May each year followed by a personal interview at Bangalore. CMI offers a BSc degree in Math and Computer Science, admissions to which is through a written test held at various centers of India in late May each year. Both ISI and CMI also admit students who have qualified in the Indian National Mathematical Olympias ( INMO) or are Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana ( KVPY) fellows. After completing Bachelor degree in Math , a student has an option to get an MSc or MS degree from the eminent institutes of India. They can also seek admission in integrated MSc- PhD programme in Mathematics.




Apart from academia, a trained mathematician can be very well employed in Government departments engaged in space research ( the Indian space research organization, ISRO), defense research ( Defense research and development organization, DRDO) , aeronautical research ( National Aeronautics Limited, or NAL) to solve their special problems. Today, cryptology is in vogue ( the systems ensuring the safety of our credit card transactions are based on some very sophisticated mathematics) . Organizations such as the DRDO and the Society for Electronic Transaction & Security ( SETS) are interested in mathematicians with training in this area. Financial mathematics is another area that leads to well paid jobs. Computer giants such as IBM and Microsoft have research departments which have highly paid scientists who are either mathematician or theoretical computer scientists
