Can i still take business in college?

ComplexitiveComplexitive Registered User Posts: 4 New Member
Im a senior high student currently in the STEM track. Ive begun to realize that i might want to take business for financial purposes. Should i still finish my track and just take up business in college or can i transfer tracks in the middle of the year?

    Senior high schools student? I assume you're saying you're taking either dual credit or AP courses for college credit.

    You should be able to just take different courses that would transfer to whichever major you're interested in (STEM or business).

    You shouldn't waste time taking STEM courses if you're posistive you are interested in business. You should sign up for classes that align with your future major.

    Explain what you mean by 'track '.
    Do you live in the US?
    Anyway, you're a senior in high school. Finish your track and take business classes in college. A good background in math and science reasoning will be useful regardless of your future major.
    Note that you don't need a business degree to work at a business (most people who work for a business didn't study business in college.)

    Right i forgot to state im not studying in the US, basically the 11th and 12th year of high school is called senior high where we take a specialiced track for our future college classes which is probably equivalent to AP courses in the US

    I signed up for STEM classes due to my interest in the subjects and i thought that i should take these classes on the last years in high school before i most likely take up business courses in college.

    So, are you a senior who lives abroad? An international who's applied to us colleges?

    So, you've already applied to various colleges in the US?
    (I don't get the sense of your question, perhaps you could rephrase)
