BS (Mathematics & Economics) is an inter-disciplinary undergraduate program for students with robust mathematical skills and keen interest in economics. This program is a perfect blend of pure and applied mathematics which does not only ensure a solid quantitative foundation for both disciplines but also provide phenomenal coverage of Statistics, Actuarial sciences and Finance. The training this degree provides is a unification of critical economic analysis and strong mathematical skills, which can help student pursue an esteemed position in financial services industry, growth and development centers, business enterprises, as well as public sector. Graduates with this degree are increasingly valued by employers because of their critical reasoning and sound knowledge as much of the economic theory is currently presented in terms of mathematical models. This opens more career options than the ones traditionally available to either mathematics or economics majors. This degree is also a paragon for those who aim for Master/ Doctoral degree in Economics, Finance, Mathematics, Statistics, Actuarial Sciences or other related fields. 

The BS (Mathematics & Economics) is a four-year program. Applicants who have successfully completed H.Sc with minimum 50% marks in Pre-Engineering or in General Group (with Mathematics) or A-Levels with a minimum 2 Cs in three principal subjects (with Mathematics) are eligible to apply for admission. Graduation requirement is the completion of 141 credit hours of course work and 3 credit hours of project approved by college. Students must take a minimum load of 12 credit hours (four courses) or a maximum load of 18 credit hours (six courses) in a semester. In order to obtain the BS degree in four years, a student is required to cover twelve courses in a year. Full load of six courses can be taken each in the Fall and Spring semesters with an option of four courses in the latter and making up for the short fall in summer session. Students must maintain a CGPA of 2.5 for the conferment of degree.
