Math course for Laurier BBA? Lost....

A photo of koreanhendrix93 koreanhendrix93
Hey all!
For those who've started registering for courses, I'm in a big dilemma right now!
I also just did my CPE (Calculus Preparation Exam) and ended with 92%.
As a BBA student, the main math that's often taken is MA129, yet I hear it restricts people from taking higher level courses. In fact, I'm hopefully headed towards trading and finance, and I was wondering if taking higher level math would be necessary. If it would be necessary, then I would take MA110, but if not, then I'd rather stick with MA129..

Mind if someone could help me out? Thanks! ;D

If you:

1) Want to do financial math

2) Are good at math

3) Like Math

4) and did well on the CPE (you did)

Then take MA110 or MA103 (110 isn't quite as hard as 103 but is 1.0 credit/full year).

I would like to do financial math, but would it show as a Financial math minor?
Now that would be interesting...

And btw, I'm sure MA110 is a 1.0 credit course, according to Laurier's website.

I think you could do a minor in financial math - I am not 100% sure but I don't see why not.

MA110 is 1.0 credit - that is what I said.

Math that has to do with finance.

Basic stuff will be interest, annuities, amortization, cash flows, bonds, etc. Then you will start doing more linear algebra and start to get more advanced with capital budgeting, risk management, and portfolio optimization.

Eventually you get to stuff like Stochastic Processes, and that stuff is way over my head so I couldn't tell you much about it.
