"During high school I didn't really consider studying a business-related discipline. I also didn't enjoy studying maths, as I found it very dry and not very applicable to everyday life. Although Econometrics is very math-heavy, its application to real-world problems is extremely rewarding." Adrian Crosland, Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Economics
