This programme combines the main contents of both economics and mathematics within a programmatic structure that joins the two disciplines.
It applies mathematical methods to represent theories and analyse problems in economics.
It is argued that mathematics allows economists to form meaningful, testable propositions about wide-ranging and complex subjects. In addition, the language of mathematics allows economists to make specific, positive claims about controversial or contentious subjects that would be impossible without it. Therefore a combination of both disciplines in a single programme ensures that our graduates enter the world of work with the requisite skills.
Applicants pass Elective Mathematics, Economics and any one (1) of the following elective subjects: Physics, Chemistry Business Management, Principles of Costing and Accounting or Geography.
In today’s increasingly complicated international business world, a strong preparation in the fundamentals of both economics and mathematics is crucial to success. Graduates can find work as economists, market research analysts, financial analysts, and financial planners, amongst several other rewarding career fields.
