Do you want to go into business? Did you know that a major in mathematics is a great preparation for business school? Mathematics majors consistently outscore almost every other major on the GMAT, the graduate business school entrance exam.
In fact, Dmitri Kuksov, a professor of marketing at the Olin School of Business says
“Math… is possibly the best undergraduate background to get into business schools”
Steven Wheelwright, former professor at the Harvard Business School, and now president of BYU-Hawaii says,
“Mathematics provided an approach to problem solving and analysis that has continued to be of great help to me in my academic and business career. It has also been of great benefit as I have tackled both research projects and consulting projects involving data analysis and statistics. And it was where I started my academic teaching career – and then provided a foundation as I moved into Operations Strategy and New Product Development.”
