edited July 2010 in Business Major
coming into college i wanted to be a finance major and work as a analyst. now im starting to double think that. I go to Baruch college which has a well known business program. I am considering major in entrepreneurship. I wanted to go to Cornell school of hospitality mgt but didn't get in though i had a great application gpa ecs. I do not see myself working for someone for too long. I want to major in management but Baruch doesn't have too much to offer except operations management and human resources.
I wanted to know is majoring in entrepreneurship a good idea or not.
I want to get a job after graduating.

    Majoring in entrepreneurship and getting a job after graduating is kind of a contradiction. Not that people with jobs can't have the entrepreneurial spirit, but an entrepreneur is generally a business owner or inventor.

    If you want a job when you graduate stay in finance or switch to accounting. The only other major that will give you solid employment prospects besides those two is computer science, but it's probably too late for that.

    People majoring in entrepreneurship tend to open their own business or start their own venture after college. If you would double major in entrepreneurship and something else that would be good.
