Program description

Mathematical Economics

Graduates with strong analytical skills are highly valued in today’s increasingly data-driven and interconnected business world. The Mathematical Economics major provides a course of study that allows students to not only acquire some of these highly valued analytical skills, but also integrates that knowledge with a deeper understanding of the business world. This combination of mathematics and economics knowledge makes Mathematical Economics graduates both highly competitive on the job market and excellent candidates for graduate school.

The Mathematical Economics major satisfies the requirements for the B.S. degree in the School of Arts & Sciences. It requires students to take 12 core units followed by 4 elective courses. The core courses serve to build a strong basic foundation in both economics and mathematics. The elective courses then allow the student to tailor their major to their post-graduation goals. To provide further breadth to their education Math-Econ majors may also declare additional majors (including in the Business School) as long as these additional majors are not Economics or Mathematics.

Recent Math-Econ graduates have chosen electives sequences towards post-graduation paths that include jobs in finance, economics, actuarial sciences, consulting, and management, and graduate school in economics, statistics, strategy, and business. Advisors and coordinators in the major work closely with students to choose electives consistent with the students’ short and long-term goals. The program coordinators additionally work with other departments to help Math-Econ majors take non-major courses that complement their studies towards post-graduation goals in fields such as finance, consulting, and actuarial sciences.

Admission requirements

Candidates for admission must have a high school diploma (or recognized equivalent), and must have completed a minimum of 16 units of secondary school coursework. Minimum requirements include four units in English, three in college preparatory mathematics (including Algebra I, II, and Geometry), and at least two each in history, laboratory science, and a second language (two units of the same language, including American Sign Language).
