Welcome to Mathematics Business and Accounting Programs

The Faculty of Mathematics, in partnership with the University of Waterloo's School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) and the School of Business and Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University (Laurier), offers eight exciting programs which provide a unique opportunity to combine business with mathematics.

Our students have superior quantitative, analytical, problem-solving, technical, and professional  skills developed through an education combining business with the mathematical and computer sciences. The students are equipped with the tools, attitudes, and the real-word perspectives which enable them to become leaders in thought and process in their chosen fields within the broadly defined fields of Business.

Business and Mathematics Double Degree graduate Adi Morun talks about his new career and how his studies at Waterloo and Laurier prepared him for success.

    Ludwig Lie in front of the London Bridge

    It took Ludwig Lie a while to get used to the University of Waterloo. Compared to Jakarta, it was cold, he was very homesick, and he didn’t feel like he belonged in the program he had chosen.

    Ludwig chose Waterloo because it had the largest Faculty of Mathematics, and it had a co-op program. He knew his interest lay in finance, and once he discovered the Financial Analysis and Risk Management (FARM) program, he made the switch, and his experience improved.
