I don't think we even have finance or accounting as a major here, but plenty of I-bankers (roommate has interviews at Morgan Stanley, Solomon, JPMorgan, etc). There's only one accounting class, and only seniors get in.Originally posted by crazyA
back in the boom time of the year 2000, it was still very feasible to get good business jobs with an econ degree...but from my observations, only people with finance or accountancy degrees could get the really lucrative I-banking jobs...
so everyone i know with an econ degree is either right now in med school, wokring in the business World, or in grad school
but it really is a fascinating field
If you're Ivy, you don't need a 4.0 at all...I don't know about other places.Originally posted by kreno
As a "PLAIN" econ major, I agree. You have to keep going to get an MBA/MASTERS to do anything productive... unless you are a 4.0 student from a good schoool then you can get a respectable job somewhere - but that's it.
