Business and math???

A photo of business09 business09
Hey guys,

Is there a lot of math involved when doing BBA (bachelor of business administration)in

first year? I don't mind if there is, but I am hoping someone could tell me so i can

make a better decision when choosing my path.

For most programs there is only 1 math, which is usually calculus. Typically this is just a review of high school cal with some new stuff (note this does not mean you don't have to work hard). Some business programs have a stats course in first year (if not it will be 2nd year) such as Waterloo AFM and Queen's Commerce I think (don't quote me on the latter).

There are other maths you can take in first year as well, such as more advanced calc or mathematics for finance.

I am doing iBBA and I only need to take one math in the 1st year which is STATS. However, I have an option of taking electives such as calculus or integrals. Most programs have two more core math courses in the 2nd year, but many more math options as electives.
