Business mathematics comprises mathematics credits taken at an undergraduate level by business students. The course [3] is often organized around the various business sub-disciplines, including the above applications, and usually includes a separate module on interest calculations; the mathematics comprises mainly algebraic techniques.[1] Many programs, as mentioned, extend to more sophisticated mathematics. Common credits are Business Calculus [4] and Business Statistics. [5] Programs may also cover matrix operations, as above. At many US universities, business students (instead) study “finite mathematics”,[6] a course combining several applicable topics, including basic probability theory, an introduction to linear programming, some theory of matrices, and introductory game theory; the course sometimes includes a high level treatment of calculus.
Since these courses are focused on problems from the business world, the syllabus is then adjusted re standard courses in the mathematics or science fields.[7] The calculus course especially emphasizes differentiation, leading to optimization of costs and revenue. Integration is less emphasized, as its business applications are fewer — used here [8] in some interest calculations, and for (theoretically) aggregating costs and / or revenue — and it is more technically demanding. Relatedly, in a regular calculus course students study trigonometric functions, whereas courses here do not typically cover this area. As regards formal theory, as these are applied courses, very few proofs or derivations are included, unlike standard courses.[7] (Although see Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Bachelor of Business Science.) The statistics syllabus, similarly of an applied nature, is described under that article.
Note that economics majors, especially those planning to pursue graduate study in the field, are encouraged to instead take regular calculus, as well as linear algebra and other advanced math courses, especially real analysis. Some economics programs (instead) include a module in “mathematics for economists”,[9] providing a bridge between the above “Business Mathematics” courses and mathematical economics and econometrics. Programs in management accounting, operations management, risk management and credit management, may similarly include supplementary coursework in relevant quantitative techniques, generally regression, and often linear programming as above, as well as other optimization techniques and various probability topics.
