my university listed their highest paying graduates last year. Out of all of the majors, engineering, medicine, math, etc. The Finance major was the one straight out of undergrad with +$130,000 salary. [spoiler]it was probably his jewish uncle's investment firm, but still[/spoiler]
Well ultimately going into Finance might be a nice little thing to do, might even be what I'm aiming for right now. So what's better to that end, Economics/Statistics, Statistics or Economics/Politics. These are the choices I have.
>>1072765 2 degrees is only worth pursuing if you are interested in both topics, are willing to put in a LOT of work (my econ degree was an extra 30 units even with all the math crossovers) and are willing to risk graduating at least a semester late.
>>1072719 You better be going to a top school for any of these majors, or at least a good regional school with connections to industries dealing with these degrees.
Out of all of them you listed, stats will always be considered useful to employers regardless of your school, but you can learn that shit by searching up excel tuts on Youtube and going into the interview saying that you're a master at Excel.
>>1072719 Stats is great. It's so boring that only true believers do it. Also a lot of sweet tail. Anyway, we need stats for machine learning/artificial intelligence which is the future, also financial models, medicine and everything else.
>>1077247 Once you learn the stats you can pretty much apply it to anything. Personally I think econometrics applied to macro econ is kinda lame. The assumptions are so narrow that the models are pretty useless except as an academic tool. The people who employ you would be deluded into thinking they're more powerful than they are, and are you going to tell them otherwise?
Yeah, I understand. That's my problem, i'm not sure I can stomach 4 years of pure stats and not be incredibly bored, perhaps with the econ element it would be more interesting to me, so therefore I wonder if an Econ/Stats degree is really that much worse than pure Stats degree.
>>1077315 If you wanna spice up your degree I can't fault that. I combined B. Math with comp sci for some spice. I feel like finance would be better than econ, though. Quant up that finance degree, that makes you so much more useful than the usual dumb jocks being churns out of those programs.
Stats is really interesting though. Like I said, machine learning, finance, medicine, all that shit.
