Default SMU offer triple majors?

Does SMU offer triple majors? Came across a linkedin profile where the user claimed to study triple majors in smu. https://sg.linkedin.com/in/pdyjoseph

Can someone confirm this with me? Emailed SMU but they never get back to me.

Can't say for sure myself, but he is probably a double degree student with business as the primary degree, and took a double major for biz (judging from the majors listed). Add that to his accountancy major then you'll get what is technically a triple major.

Whoops. Late reply. I'm from SMU, so I can't really answer for the other unis. I suggest you try asking a senior from there, or ask them to ask their friends from the relevant faculty.

Hey, just wanted to know if it is possible to have a combination as follows:

Double Degree with Bus Mgm primary degree and Econs secondary degree and a Secondary Major in IS ?

Thanks!

I'm not sure, but even if you can (to be honest you probably can since SMU is quite flexible, but I recommend you send in an email), you may want to reconsider such an option. Biz, econs, and IS do not overlap much in terms of the mods required - you will probably end up having to overload quite frequently just to ensure you have sufficient credit units for the relevant mods.

Most people who complete their double degree in four (or less) years typically are able to do so due to a combination of exemptions, overloading *some* semesters, and taking mods that fulfill the requirements of both degrees (or majors). Not sure how an option like yours will work out due to how disjointed it is.
