Economics As Good As Businness

Ive heard economics can be preferred by various graduate businness schools. They rather see someone with economics rather than a finance degree. Any thoughts on this. Particularly focus on NYU Stern vs. Columbia.

    Either one is excellent (stern or columbia). On the MBA thing, That's not true-I'm sure Wharton or NYU Stern prefers a finance graduate from their school over a harvard english major...

    I agree. I think eco is easier to get a job straight away. And since job experience is important if one wants to go for their mba, it's quite a bit more common.

    for finance graduate school, for like banking and stuff, someone said as much math as possible is good

    i guess quantitative economics sounds good for that.

    Finance is all quantitative analysis so I think it would be better than econ or math.

    NYU stern is number 1 in Finance. But looking at just the two degrees, i think economics is better, after college. Thats why i am going to study economics
