Is majoring in business a good idea?
I am a current junior in high school and I am considering majoring in a business major, maybe finance, but open for suggestions in other areas of expertise. Is majoring in a business major good for job security? What is the average salary of the graduates who receive a job after graduation? What are the chances of getting a job right after graduation? I plan to attend Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley. Is there anything I can do right now to start preparing? Please help me with any information about business majors and jobs in business. Serious answers and sources (not Business Week) appreciated. Thank you. Will certain ethnicities be more successful than others?
