With regard to your inquiry about business school admissions, unless you are applying for a program like Harvard’s 2+2, you will want to get 2-5 years of full time work experience before attending business school. Thus, what will be important for you in the MBA admissions process is your full-time work experience. Successful MBA candidates come from all parts of the academic universe—English majors, bio-medical majors, engineering majors, business majors, and math majors among others. A common thread among most of these successful MBA applicants is their great success in their early post-undergraduate careers.
Your math background may affect what job you attain upon graduation from your undergraduate institution. For business-related careers, you math background should be a plus, because you will have strong quantitative skills. Try to take steps to pick up teamwork experience and leadership experience while you are an undergrad also, as that is a plus for most business-related jobs. Then, take care with your choice of a full-time job. You will want your 2-5 years of full-time work experience to be viewed as a tremendous asset to business schools, and you will want your recommendation writers to be able to write that you are one of the stronger performers on the job.
Good for you for thinking this through while you are still an undergraduate. I am sure your forward thinking will bear great fruit!
Hi! My name is FilipinoFunk from Northeast Pennsylvania
I am currently a sophomore math major with a minor in computer science (and possibly economics) who is very interested in getting an mba or a phd in math (maybe both) in the future.
I'm the top math student in my university and my professors are taming me for success in getting into a good graduate math program, but business school has always been in the back of my mind. I'm currently spending the summer at my university where I got a grant to do pure math research with one of the professors and will begin taking graduate level math courses during my junior year.
Does being very math-oriented hurt my chances of getting into a top ranked business school? Or should I slow down with the math and take more business courses? Or is doing well on the gmat with a good gpa and math resume sufficient?
