Is an economics degree a good major to help me get into investment banking/corporate finance? I plan on attending Carleton College in MN, and economics is the only somewhat business concentration that they have. Would an economics degree help give me the tools to know what I need to in order to be an investment banker? I can take finance and accounting courses from St. Olaf college which would help a little bit as well. Also, a couple years after graduating, I'd like to get my MBA from a top notch B-school, will an economics degree hold me back from getting in because its not a business concentrated degree? Thanks for all the help and feel free to post any general tips/advice that you think would be helpful. Thanks a lot!
