Math Undergrad and then MBA?

How's that sound? I think you need strong math skills to really get the high paid business job, right?

Math sure builds those Numeracy skills.

But you'll be missing out on Accounting, Finance, and other Business knowledge.
Also, your work experience most likely won't be related to Business.

Actuarial Science would be the closest.

Hi, may I ask why you have the 1 after every course code of yours?

It depends on what you want to get into. If you want to get into marketing, math doesn't have too many applications. Compare that to finance, where math is much more prominent.

Perhaps you should consider the Waterloo/Laurier BMath/BBA double degree or a Western math degree and Ivey HBA combo.

Don't just do a BMath and plan to work in management at a company and then go for your MBA in a few years.

The two options I gave there give you lots of business options as well as tons of math content.

Thats how a standard course code should be isnt it? i thought 1 stands for the number of credit for this course.

It's an I, not a 1

Notice how civics isn't CVC2D0.5 (I don't know what the course code is btw)

For us, it's a 0 (zero)... like ENG 4U0

I don't think it matters. IB courses are given Ontario high school equivalents with a 7 at the end.
i.e. SL IB math counts as MCV 4U7 and MHF 4U7

Theoretical math is going to be pretty useless in business (from Today's understanding of it). If you like that stuff and want to maximize your options, do engineering in undergrad and then MBA. That's a deadly combination today. ;)

Not sure how MINTOK defines theoretical math, but here at one of the top business schools in the U.S., Math skills is considered at 3 points in time - in the MBA admissions process, the placement into MBA classes and in the job-market application cycle. I am not qualified to be drawing a line between what's theoretical and what's not but it does appear that more math, no matter what type, helps you if a MBA is your goal.

Math is a good undergraduate program on your logic (But Engineering would be a lot better with the same logic) but not that necessary in business.
