Career opportunities

A twenty-year study conducted by Statistics Canada reveals that people who study mathematics earn as much as graduates in business administration or health sciences, and are not far behind the highest earning graduates in engineering sciences.

Having a math component to your degree signals to prospective employers that you have the ability to think analytically, abstractly, and logically, with depth and clarity. These attractive qualities can open the door to a satisfying career in a variety of sectors including:

  • Education
  • Actuarial science
  • Computer science
  • Business
  • Engineering
  • High technology
  • Cryptography
  • Finance

Many employers do not have the in-house mathematical or statistical expertise to develop their enterprise. In consequence, math skills are highly prized in a variety of sectors, such as manufacturing, mining and oil, public administration, and professional, scientific, and technical services.
