Study Maths/Business or just Maths?

    I wish to work as someone who predicts the share market, financial modelling etc. However what would have a better prospective?

    definitely math, or math/economics. Do not do business if you want to go into quantitative finance. Some people even major in physics.

    this is australia and we call it business but you can major it a variety of things like business law, accountancy and economics.

    I would say applied math would give you a better prospective, at least in theory. I'm sure you'll be able to adapt the math you know to the business world easily enough.
