Anyone who still considers mathematics to be unworldly should realize how practical its professional fields are, on the contrary. Banks and insurance companies, but also logistics and telecommunications companies or software and consulting firms, for example, need specialists with analytical skills who can think in complex contexts and forge solutions from them that are suitable for everyday use. Mathematicians are also in demand in research and development across all industries . The prerequisites for this demanding course of study are the ability to think abstractly and logically, as well as self-discipline, diligence and stamina, because studying mathematics is very work-intensive, especially at the beginning.

The German Mathematical Society offers on its website a lot of information about the study of mathematics and the professional field of mathematics. In particular, many professional portraits of mathematicians from various fields can be found there at (including portraits of Kassel graduates).
