Currenty an engineering student, thinking about switching to business

Hello everybody. I am a first year student currently enrolled in the School of Engineering at Rutgers University. I just had one question - Will I be able to switch to a business major (Finance/Economics) my second year if Engineering doesn't work out for me? Or am I confined to Engineering? My current courses are the following if it matters:

13 Credits

151 Calculus
123 Analytical Physics
159 General Chemistry for Engineers
171 Intro to Experimentation
127 Intro to Computers for Engineers

I want to finish the year as an Engineering major, and then I may want to switch to business next fall. Is this possible without too much trouble? Thanks in advance.

    well the Calc, chem and Physics are fine, as they will help you in Business, the others wont.

    Nest semester rather than another non fundamental engineering course, try taking economics.

    I fail to see how calc will help, when you don't need to know anything beyond grade school level math, in business classes.

    VTBOy, there are actually many applications for calculus in Business and even more so in economics.

    Many schools will have either there own tailor made Business calculus class, orr make there students take Calc 1 and Calc 2

    Agreed. Business majors at my school are required to take Calculus..don't quote me on this, but I think it's called "Calculus for the Managerial Sciences."

    the business school at my school requires calc I and calc II in order to graduate. you just don't need calc III (multivariable).

    A business degree here requires calc - it's a lower calc than what Engineering/Math/Hard Science majors have to take though.
