**The changes in the 2015-2016 Catalogs do not affect current students. Current students follow the requirements under their declared catalog year for the core and major. A student’s declared catalog is the catalog that was in place when you enrolled at the Mount unless you specifically chose to change it to a subsequent catalog. All previous catalogs remain the same for core requirements and major requirements.
As a major in math and business administration, students develop a solid foundation in both subjects.

These skills guide toward a successful career in many fields such as business, marketing or finance.
