I'm currently a sophomore at UT - Austin, thinking about transferring to McCombs Business School for Fall 2007. I've been considering both finance and international business, but I'm leaning more towards IB. A few questions:
1) Is Finance as math-heavy as people make it out to be? I'm comfortable to a certain extent with math, and looking at the degree plan, it only has a handful of required math courses. Do the actual classes, such as "Finance 302", etc. rely thatheavily on math?
2) If I did IB, I'm positive that I'd want to focus on Turkey (half of my family is from there, very familiar with the language, etc.). How much say does one have in determining where they'll want to work after graduating with an IB degree?
3) I know that the salary for IB has much more variation in salaries after you graduate, but is there some sort of comparison as to how much they earn compared to something like finance?
4) What's the typical route after you graduate from IB? What are the most prestigious firms?
