Math Background and Competitiveness [#permalink]

Currently, I have taken through Calculus 1. I am considering Calculus 2, but I don't know how important Math is to top MBA programs. I'm more concerned that it could be potentially hurtful to my GPA since Calculus 2 seems to be the hardest in the Calculus sequence. However, if Math can increase how desirable I am to MBA programs, I am willing to take the risk. Does anyone have any insight into the Math background of those at top MBA schools and how favorably they look to people with backgrounds in Math?

Plus, taking Calculus 2 will hardly be considered "having a background in math." The people who truly have backgrounds in math are those who studied astrophysics or engineering, won national math competitions, taught themselves calculus at the age of 14, etc. (for each of these things, I know someone applying to business school who has accomplished it).
As precision essay said, focus on other aspects of your profile, making sure to demonstrate that your quantitative background is "good enough", i.e. good GMAT quant score, some reasonable quant coursework like stats, etc.
Also, you sound like you're still an undergrad. Why are you thinking about business school now? Have you ever worked in a corporate environment full time?
