Wilfrid Laurier First year easy electives

A photo of Dhruv61 Dhruv61
MA129. And here are my courses.
EC-101
BU-121
GG-102 (human geo)
SY-101 (intro to sociology)
EC-120
BU-111
CP-102
AS-101 (astronomy)
AN-101 (anthropology)

Do any of these courses seem hard? And I want to major in marketing or finance. But what my question is which math do i have to take if i wanna go into finance? i took MA129

MA129 is fine for finance. Just to take the finance course(s) in third year you need a stats course I think as a pre-requisite (or MA110/103)

You can't take MA110 but technically you could take MA103 with MA129...There's no point though unless you want to minor in math or something.

You can take MA129 and still take all the finance courses in third and fourth year, you just need to take a 3rd year stats course as a pre-requisite. I'm choosing that route lol.

I don't know about anything AN101 so not too sure. The other ones I've heard are bird courses though (chose some myself).

Im done year 2 bba. Easy electives = an101, as101, gg101, gg102, cp102.
Generally, most electives arent that bad. Worry about bba stuff is my advice.

I'm going into 3rd year laurier business, and I do not recall you needing a 3rd year stats course to do finance in 4th year. You need to take 2 accounting elective courses to go into accounting 4th year, but as long as you take the two required finance courses in 3rd year I'm pretty sure you can take all finance courses.

Username81 was referring to financial math courses I believe, and I believe there is a 2nd or 3rd year stats course that serves as a prerequisite to the upper year financial math courses (and MA170 - Mathematics for Finance - doesn't, kinda stupid in a way)
