Assuming you are in Pakistan, it seems the 2 top universities there require Physics:

Nust says:
ProgrammesPakistani system of studiesForeign systems of studies
BS Computer ScienceFSc Pre-Engineering / Computer Science GroupO level (SSC) equivalence of “Science group” and A level (HSSC) equivalence of “Pre-Engineering group” OR “Computer Science group” including Maths, Physics, Chemistry/Computer Science/Computer Studies as mandatory subjects.

^so basically they require math + Physics + chem OR Computers

even their admissions through SATs show same:
Code:
BS Computer Science / Computer Engineering / Software Engineering
Academic Requirement
Minimum 60% aggregate marks each in Matric / equivalent (Science Group) and HSSC/equivalent exams (Pre-Engineering / Computer Science Group).

SAT Requirement

Mathematics Level II
Physics
NED UET also mentions something similar:

Code:
HSC (Computer Science/Equivalent)(Mathematics, Physics, Computer Sc.):

BE Electronics Engineering
BS Management Sciences

BS Development Studies
BE Computer Systems Engineering   
BS Computational Finance
BE Software Engineering BS English Linguistics

Since math is really essential if you want to have a business career in future, you should take it. Although you won't be using the concepts of Calculus and Trig, some modules such as statistics etc. would be definitely helpful for you.

I am literally so lost when it comes to career choosing, which is bad considering how my subject choice depends upon it.
