    I’ve decided to change my major from nursing to Mathematics since I have always been great in math and have enjoyed it. To give me more options with my degree, I’ve decided to minor in either Finance or Accounting. and was just wondering what career aooprtunities are available to me with thie major and minor. I know that I could become an Actuary by passing several certification exams, but what other options are there for me?

    I know that there are many threads on yahoo answers and college confidential concerning whether to double major in Finance/Accounting, Accounting/Math, etc; however, this pertains to a specific issue.

    I am pretty set on doing Finance unless something catastrophic occurs but how about my idea of Economics? If I were to do Economics, I would definitely be choosing the Bachelor of Science side, and at my school the Bachelor of Science requires a few math courses: Calculus I, II, and III; Mathematical Statistics I and II, and a few required Math electives which are probably going to be Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Mathematical Reasoning/Proof, and Intro to Combinatorics.

    I know that some might ask, “why not just get the second degree in mathematics?” but will a degree in pure mathematics really help me in economics and finance? I mean, the BS in Econ would be just as quantitative, I think. Plus, Mathematics majors do not have to take Mathematical Statistics I, II and I would actually like to become an actuary so the statistics part would be extremely helpful, also the Combinatorics. Or perhaps, I might go to graduate school first and get a MS in Statistics. In any case, I don’t think just Finance will get me where I want to go because my school’s Finance program is not filled with Math based classes other than Business Analysis I and II (Business Calculus). So what would you guys recommend?

    Many thanks in advance! By the way, any kind of insight on the matter presented would be greatly appreciated.
    Emily–Yes ma├ím. Yesterday, I consulted with them about it, and they said yes.
    Rob– Not that I am down putting your comment, but I am not a high school senior. I’m actually in college right now and already have most of the electives and general education part of college down packed, along with a study abroad experience to Germany. I am definitely willing to continue the hard work.
    Rob– I’ve also completed a few of the classes already. You make it seem as if it’s impossible. With much determination, a steadfast and indomitable spirit, careful planning with one’s advisor, and the desire to excel, it is definitely possible to double major. I’m not saying it’s easy, but it is definitely possible. Moreover, you do not know me. I assure you that I’m quite the competitor.

    Lastly, while I do appreciate your input, discouragement is not really what I would call as insight.

    Im having a hard time deciding what business concentration to go into. The one I had in mind only has class offering once per year and would put off graduation for another two years. I want the input of people who have done these concentrations, if they could do it again would do it differently, are currently working in one of these fields, or are studying in one.
    Which one of these concentrations offers a lot of job prospects (or the positions arent being outsourced) any input is appreciated:
    Human Resources Management
    International Management (although i cant study abroad so maybe that ones pointless for me)
    management information systems
    marketing management
    organizational management (with focus on entrepreneurial studies,organizational leadership, or tourism management)
    operations management

    ….any advice is appreciated on which of these choices is practical and has a high chance of employment after graduating. Thanks so much in advance!!
    I have a 3.6 gpa. I speak a little portuguese but not enough to ever be fluent in it. Im a brazilian citizen lol. I was thinking MIS but the outsourcing and prolonged graduation time turned me off of it. U=Ive been leaning toward finance. My school doesnt offer the BS in Business Problem solving. Im getting a minor in speech and hearing sciences because i may decide to master in that if i cant get work in finance.

    I want to be a ‘business woman’ you know, with a big firm/company and so on. What’s the difference between business, finance and accounting?

    I’m currently doing my Masters on Corporate Law, the programme provided for an additional non compulsory course which is Finance & Accounting, do you think that this is relevant for lawyers? And if it is a yes, how do we connect it with law and where could we use it in the daily legal works?
