Man fu*k that, stay in Accounting. The classes suck but the reward is great. Unlike marketing, management, and finance, accounting is a profession. There is a set career path , staff accountant/tax a.ssociate/staff auditor, then you graduate to senior, then you graduate to accounting manager, then you can become a partner (if you stay in public accounting) or controller (if you work in industry)...next step is CFO. You can work in public accounting, not for profit, government (including irs), or industry. If you pass the CPA exam you are golden, you can even open up your own CPA firm.. Someone lay out the finance, economics, and management career path for me (crickets)...I mean finance is cool and all but you have to go to a top ranked school to get the most out of that degree (wall street, investment banking, hedge funds, etc) but of course obtaining the cfa designation can help. Management/ marketing is like a communications degree for business majors (useless). Econ you need a Ph.D in order to do anything.

Well, what do you plan to do with it? Engineering's definitely rewarding considering I know just about all the people I know with a bachelor's in engineering ended up with a nice relevant engineering job sometime down the road.

If you're referring to the Bachelors in Criminal Justice than i would try Homeland Security. A friend of mine started at 60,000 a year doing that

Yeah I heard that if you aren't going to a top school for a marketing program, it is truly hard to get into an ideal marketing position with job security.

Finance & Accounting are technical skills that you learn rather than theory based like marketing. You can easily apply for a position in a marketing firm with a finance or accounting background rather vice versa.

Try accounting before finance, more opportunities my n*gga.

Kids, if you're going into business please don't be a management / marketing major. I came into my school with management but luckily I had people around me who were pretty blunt in letting me know it was useless, switched to the accounting path my soph year, before we got into our specific paths. Way more opportunities. Accounting, Finance, Insurance / Actuarial Science, or if your school has it, Supply Chain Management

Just graduated in Information Science Technology in May. Started as Computer Engineering honestly couldnt handle the load and really got frustrated, ended up switching after 3.5 years luckily it wasnt a major change and I was only set back a summer and fall semester... I was just hired as a software developer for an insurance company making pretty good pay for an entry level position.
