Pure Math vs Applied math for Financial Engineering program
Hi. I am a sophomore and still have not decided my major yet. i started school with biololgy
major but wanted to switch the major to Ams (applied math and stats, which is in
engineering school) by taking math
class. I do have a great in interest in financial engineering..and as of now, my goal is to
get into a good financial engineering program after undergraduate...I do know that i have
to take alot of math and business classes to prepare for the program..but i am not sure what iam supposed to major in..
pure math, or AMS??
-btw, im also minoring in Entreprenuership management, where i took many accounting,and other business classes.
I want to add one more question. In my school, there's not a big difference between pure mathematics and AMS. Calc 1,2,3, Lin algebra, Differential.. these three classes are the same requirements. Only 4 classes are different, here is the chart.
pure mathematics; Analysis 1,2(Introduction to Real Analysis, Calculus on Manifolds), Advanced Algebra 1,2(or number theory)
AMS: Scientific Computing, Intro to Optimization, Prob Stats 1,2
above chart shows there are four different required courses for each major. Which is a heavier courseload?
