*DISCLAIMER: I know this is not true for all cases...I am just generalizing here*
if you're going to wharton or sloan and majoring in business...that is one thing, as you will most likely get a job JUST BECAUSE you went to sloan or wharton.
but thats really it...including the rest of the top 10 schools. an undergraduate degree in business may get you a mediocre paying job, but if you want to move up the rank quickly you're going to need an MBA.
If you did undergrad business and you get an MBA, it is still like having 1 skill. If you do undergrad in anything else, and then you get an MBA...then you have 2 skills.
In BSchool, you'll be taking marketing, economics, communication, entrepreneurship, finance, accounting, maybe b-law, most likely some probability and stats, as well as concentration classes on some sort of emphasis that you've decided on.
Now instead of doing that...major in something more quantitative and then bone up your skill set with classes in the business curriculum...such as finance and accounting, maybe take an communication class as well.
If i had to do it all over again...i would have double majored in math/econ.
and if i didn't love math and science as much as I actually do...i would have majored in accounting. probably the hottest career out there right now.
