The analysis of causal model was done by AMOS program. The model was found in accordance with an empirical data with Chi-Square = 1.666, df = 1, p = 0.197, GFI = 0.996, AGFI = 0.941 and RMSEA = 0.063. The  findings indicated that the direct effect of the knowledge of fundamental mathematics influenced the Business Mathematics learning achievement most at 0.591, followed by the grade point average at 0.281, and the study program in high school at 0.151 while  the student’s attitude towards Mathematics has the minimal influenced at 0.109.
