Waterloo Math/Business (SINGLE DEGREE)

A photo of Colintoto0 Colintoto0
Hey all, I have a question regarding the Math/Business program at UW.
What are the typical admission averages for this program? I always hear people talking about the double degree Math/Business but just recently discovered this program.
Also, What can i specialize in ...in this program? It has been really hard to find any information on this or any threads regarding this program.

So my questions are:

1. Admission averages? ( i know the cut off but interested in admission avg's)
2. What fields can i go into? (i prefer accounting or finance)
3. Any know how the coop in this program is?
4. Is this comparable to AFM- Business and Finance?

Thanks! Any answers would be greatly appreciated.

I'm assuming you were the one who sent me a PM asking about this program? It came as anonymous so I don't know who it was and can't reply. I'm guessing the forum was broken again.

1. Mid-80s. High 80s to be safe.

2. This program is designed to give you "more advanced quantitative and technical skills than are available through traditional business programs".

Co-op Students at Work

Programmer, Rogue Wave Software – Program in Java and C++ software, provide quality assurance of their libraries, and give technical assistance with marketing.

Internal Auditor, AGF Management Ltd. – Collect, analyze, interpret, and document audit results, including sampling and data testing.

Grads at Work

Technical Support Analyst, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Technical Trainer, Icon Entertainment
Marketing Specialist, Lotus Development Canada Ltd.
Management Consultant, Monitor Co.

3. You get 6 co-op terms, and they're often pretty good. I'm not sure about specifically for this program but the co-op for the math faculty in general is quite good. You can help supplement your tuition with earnings too.

4. Not really. More similar to the UW/WLU Math/Business DD, and more similar to FARM than AFM.

Your major would be Mathematics/Business Administration (you'd be earning a BMath); your options could be in Economics, Human Resources Managemenet, and Systems Management.

Mid 80s compare to FARM's high 80s.. For FARM, get a low 90s to be competitive.

Take a look at the undergrad calendar for both of these programs. You will see the courses you are required to take (for Math/Business Admin you will have to look at the courses you need to take for that major as well).

Hmmm....after in depth research on the internet and forums, it seems as though this program is aimed towards those who really love computers and programming. Does anyone know if there are any good non- computer coop placements? or careers after graduation from this program?
Would you say this program is a bit too "generalized"?
Anyone currently in this program that could get information from? Thanks!

It's a math program- you are going to do math and cs related things.

If you are interested in business jobs look more into a business program or a double degree program.

Lolwut?

It's like doing a math degree with some business electives.

Math/Business SD is essentially filled with people who wanted DD or DD-esque kids who didn't want that large of a workload.

I'm wondering what in-depth means now.

This describes the program to a T.
