Economics and Mathematics Joint Major


The Economics and Mathematics joint major provides a strong base to those students who intend to pursue further studies at the graduate level in the field of Economics. Students seeking admission to a graduate programme have a higher chance of getting admitted to top ranked schools if they have taken mathematics courses like calculus, analysis, and linear algebra during their undergraduate degree programme.

Students pursuing a BS in Economics and Mathematics from the SBASSE must additionally complete the SBASSE school core requirements. The SBASSE sophomore students can opt for a major change whereas students from the rest of the schools can apply for an inter school transfer.
