I'm a social science major (sociology) who is hoping to add some marketability to my degree. I figure a good way to do this is by getting a minor from my universities business school. The two business minors that have caught my eye are "business" and "International trade and development."
The "business" minor requires basic coursework in finance, marketing, statistics, accounting, and microeconomics.
The "international trade and development" minor moderate coursework in microecon, as well as basic coursework in macro and marketing along with a few courses about economies of developing countries.
The international trade and development minor sounds more interesting to me, but is it as practical? Would it help me when applying to companies? I'd like to work internationally at some point but I don't know if thats ever going to happen. For right now I just want to be able to get a Job in the US.
