Hey everyone, been awhile since I've posted here but I could really use some advice from some of you right now.
I am currently a third year undergrad at UCI pursuing a degree in Business Economics with an additional specialization in International Studies, as well as a minor in Informatics. Up until now I always thought I was behind due to the fact that I just recently switched majors this past summer, however, I just went over my course schedule and realized that I could actually graduate next fall if I really wanted to.
However, I also have the option of staying a full four years and pursuing an additional minor in Management. The only downside to that would be the fact that I would have to take a full course load (5 courses, 20 units) until I graduate. Staying more than four years is not an option for me.
So I am faced with two decisions: 1) stay four years, take a full course load and get the additional minor in Management, or 2) graduate next fall without the Management minor. Wat would you guys suggest?
I have taken a full course load for the past few quarters and on top of my part-time job (working 20+ hours/week) I have found it to be very tiring. On the one hand it would be nice for me to graduate early, but I can't really see this as my last year being in college as an undergrad - it all seems very rushed. On the other hand, I really want to do the management minor as I do have a passion for it, but am unsure of its value on future job applications/interviews I may get, and whether or not pursuing that minor in management would be worth staying the full four years as well as working my butt off taking 5 classes per quarter until I graduate.
