Im 18 and thinking of getting a degree in Business Management , What Does /biz/ think of my choice?
Business management is the highest tier of meme degrees before you start going into full retard tier with liberal arts
It's the official "I'm unemployed, but at least I'm not a psychology major" degree
If you want to stay in that realm, then either finance or accounting
Otherwise go STEM
Do some Googling and you'll find that no one hires business management majors anymore. Long gone are the days of hiring people just to manage. Companies now hire managers internally that are already knowledgeable about the things they are working on.
what if , your family has a successful business and your gonna have to take it over sometime.. and they want you to have a understanding of business :l ? .. i already understand .. but they insist i obtain a degree :/ i guess i could do finance .. never accounting (dislikes accounting)
If your parents already own a business, then they should be teaching you first hand experience on how to run it, and not pay some keynesian jew teacher that has never worked outside of academia tens of thousands to read powerpoints to you and lecture out of the same books that you can buy on Amazon and read yourself
I'm a Junior majoring in Finance and i would absolutely suggest it over management. My small private school requires that we take a few management classes and what i realized is the classes consist of basic knowledge that a middle schooler could teach him or herself.
While i spend a lot of time reading up on finance in my own time, the finance classes i take give me information that i wouldn't have easily been able to find/learn on my own.
Also, Take some accounting. I hate it too, but it's the language of business. for instance, if you're going to live in spain you should probably learn at least a little Spanish. Just like if you're going into business, you should know AT LEAST a little accounting. the more the merrier.
Good luck OP
I switched from management to finance and never looked backed. Luckily I didn't waste any credit hours.
Definitely don't have to be great in math, just not a complete retard. If basic calculus is hard for you then I suggest no
It's fairly basic math. Mainly it's just understanding what certain equations mean. For instance, in a metaphoric equation that includes sales, what would happen to the equation if sales increased?
But with finance comes statistics, which i'm sure your school will require. It's not hard, but it isn't easy either; kinda depends on your professor. Mine was nice enough to let us use excel for rather than memorizing the equation.
never did calculus... did basic highschool maths and got what would be in america lets say C :l lol
i think i could do it tho if i really want to .. i never wanted to do maths.. all my other subs .. i got As tho.. including POB (principles of business) so now im seriously considering doing Finance.
