Has anyone in here studied/is currently studying economics? If so, what kind of math do you need there and is there anything else I should know about it if I wanna study it?

mens(((0/8 +1)))-8/8

ty men))))

depends in what uni u study it
better uni=harder

i have no idea yet tbh, rn i'm considering all the options except the most elite unis

Pussyological titster analitic math is required in order to have a succesful grades in ur student career dear men.

wassup with everyone wanting to study economics, u just count numbers all day

personally i don't really know what to do with my life, so i figured i'd just study economics and try to get a comfortable enough office job or whatever

yeh i also didnt know what to become

dk about lithuania but in sweden there's a high influx of economists. here i wouldn't recommend it unless it's something you're really interested in

I have an economics minor in Uni. I guess that It depends on your course of study, but if you are doing full time economics then you will have at least some math intensive classes.
If you are not really good/don't really like traditional maths, you could still pass easily the statistics class who are more about methods than hard calculations. Probabilities as well are kind of easy.
But if you hate it, the algebra and calculus might be a problem. You will do a lot of it for computations, and also curve derivatives (utility, profit maximization, growth models).

probability easy but hypothesis testing hard

True

all of that sounds good except calculus and curve derivatives, i'm scared of those lmao

I understand, to me it is also the worst. But if you are really performing in other classes it should be ok, especially if you can chose some minors that suits you best.

thanks men))
how exactly do minors work in europe btw? i thought that was just an american thing

Maybe you don't have it in Lithuania. It doesn't exist in France as well, but right now I'm studying in Germany and they do so it depends on the country.
When you pick a course of study, you will have a major (which you can't chose with a lot of mandatory classes) which will count for around 75% of your final grade, and a minor (where you have multiple choices usually) for 25%.

makes sense, i don't think it's a thing in here, ty

linear algebra and statistics

i had some basics of micro and macro economics and I actually liked it, even though im an anti talent when it comes to math, but in econ everything made sense to me do this, get that etc. also my lecturer was good, strict, but fair

Micro can be quite insane if you are not a math guy, I tried a class of econometrics then decided it was not for me.

studied for one semester and dropped it.
what kind of math? you will probably have math classes of algebra, statistics, linear algebra, probability, business math, etc.
what else should you know about? don't expect to learn how the stock markets work at uni, at least here in brazil they don't teach that, good luck!

thanks :)
is linear algebra hard btw? we haven't gone through that in school yet

i think it is kinda hard, but you will do it, don't be afraid. Tbh maths at economics (graduation degree) are way "softer" than other courses like computer sci, engineerings, etc. you can do it

nice, ty man

what kind of economics? business economics? thats what im currently doing as bachelor

nice

useless man, do u want to work in bank or what?
u`ll not be businessman if u study economy, u have to have great idea and u can start business without knowledge of Economy studies

not planning to start a business, i just wanna get a comfortable enough office job cuz idk what else to do with my life

Economy has a lot of, a lot of theory, keep that in mind

???
It's a huge field...

Econ major here.
Look up econometrics, all the math and hardest math you need to know is there.

ty

i studied it and its easy.
you dont need more maths than you learn in school.

integrals functions matrix liner algebra was like 90%

I am currently doing the other way arounds; means I study for my MSc degree in Mathematics and we have some applications in Economics. It's really interesting tbh.

African DK supporter, nice

Differential calculus, matrices, linear algebra, statistics, mathematical optimization, game theory. It'll be fun!
