I am currently a student at the University of Michigan and I intend on majoring in Economics. This major is outside of the business school so I was wondering if I should get a B.A. in Economics or a B.S. If I get a B.A. it would be so that I could take some basic classes within the b-school such as accounting, finance, etc. I don't plan on going to grad school and am looking to get in any type of large corporation financial position and/or investment firm careers. Is a B.A. with b-school courses more impressive than a B.S. with a mathematics minor? My school doesn't really help me because all they tell me is "you go to the University of Michigan so it doesn't really matter" which I think is a bunch of crap. I want to make the right decision for my future. So can anyone tell me the variance in job opportunity and/or salary difference between a B.A. and a B.S. in Economics?
