Colleges which have a business and CS program that can be combined

hi

I'm looking for colleges with a strong finance and math program that I have a decent shot of getting in. It could be a double or joint major or even an open curriculum, basically any colleges which will let me combine these two. for context- My extracurriculars relating to both finance and CS are pretty strong I also have some in math although I don't know if they'll help. I have a 36 ACT, I didn't take the SAT. I took AP micro/macroeconomics, AP comp sci principles, AP calculus BC, and some more and got a 5 in all of them except AP psychology where I got a 4. I have a 4.0 UW GPA. I will not be requiring any financial aid.

Thank you

University of North Carolina schools are famous for their STEM programs. They're not too crazily priced, especially for the excellent quality of education. Any UNC school looks great on an application, no matter what you go for.

- NC State

- Chapel Hill

- UNCC

- App. State (pricey)

- Mount Olive (pricey)

- East Carolina University

- UNC Wilmington (on the beach/coast)

You might want to research other NC state schools for what you're specifically looking for, but anything in NC is great math and finance-wise. Also, any New England college like Northeastern, Boston College, or other places like that around Massachusetts or Pennsylvania are really good STEM schools as well. Good luck, hope this helps!

As a reach school I would definitely consider MIT! They have great programs in both finance and comp sci, you could look into the the Business Analytics major as well. Otherwise I would consider Northeastern as mentioned previously

Any particular part of the country you are interested in?

Northeastern has a program that does what you're looking for and I imagine you can get in there based on your stats. Lehigh is another one. Maybe the BS in Data Science from Tufts would interest you too? Pretty sure Cornell also lets you double major in these two programs. Another one to consider is Washington University in St. Louis - pretty sure they have a program specifically designed for what you want. Also you could look into Computational Finance at CMU

EDIT: I just realized you mentioned Finance towards the end of my response. I think many of these programs fit what you want but didn't consider the strength of their finance major as much - hope that's ok!

I say you should consider Arizona State University. ASU offers the opportunity to double major. So you'll be earning two degrees at once. You could even see if a CS degree has business entangled in the major or choose business as your minor!
