Math in these MBA classes ? How hard ?

Can anyone let me know if, and (if yes) what the "difficulty level" is of the math for the following courses, which are part of an MBA program at a Texas state school. I just passed the Corporate Finance course which is part of the same program, and it dang near killed my brain. I ** barely ** got a B in that course, and that was largely due to my emails and proactive communications with the professor and notes from Course Hero website.

Accounting for Management Control aka "Managerial Accounting"

Formulating and Implementing Strategy aka "Strategic Management"

Both are part of the MBA program. I am early enough into this to steer my degree into another area (Human Resource Management, etc), if the math is too difficult. I am not a math person, sorry.

Thank You

    I don't see either one as super "mathy" -- solid algebra skills should do it. I thought finance had the hardest math in my BBA and MBA experience (but not at a Texas school).

    Managerial Accounting doesn't involve that much math and it fairly standard across school curriculums. Strategic Management might depend on your professor and school, a number of my business strategy courses involved financial valuation that crossed over with broadly overlapped with some corp fin topics in terms of m&a decisions but it definitely wasn't the focus. You should be fine for these 2.
