What A.S. , Minors, and certificates go great with B.S. Economics?

zohmenzohmen 0 replies1 threads New Member
I am a rising senior at Penn State
I a lot of time this summer and in the fall in spring to add an A.S. minor or certificate to my degree.

As of now, this is the list I have made:
- B.S. Economics
- A.S. Business Administration
- Minor, Business & Liberal the Arts
- Minor, Data Visualization
- Financial Accounting, Certificate
- Intermediate Business, Certificate

1. What should I keep or take out? what is good and what is a waste of time?
2. What are some suggestions that would go great, that would market me more diversly and separate me from competition with a B.S. in Economics?

Please try and be specific, please also try and advice only A.S., Minors, Certificates and not classes.

    Anything data related, math/stats, or programming. Accounting certificate if you can't do one of the prior three. If you want to get a Master's or PhD in Econ then you will definitely need more math.

    FWIW I was an Econ major a long time ago.

    @zohmen I would think:
    1) Advisor
    2) professors

    would be a better source of information for you than a random posting board.

    What do you want to do with Econ? Get a masters and work for the Fed Reserve? Law School and focus on Business Law? Depending on that answer determines what makes sense for you.
