Can you change major for transfer

I’m going to Williams College freshman year, u fortunately they don’t have many business/finance major options. I’ll probably have to go with economics. I want to transfer to NYU next year, or some other investment banking target school. Would I have to apply as an economics major or could I change the major to something like finance?

Yes you can, but why would you? Williams is an amazing school and I think you can put together a major/classes/experiences that will make you competitive for an IB career.

Don’t start college with the intention of transferring. Go in with how you can make it work.


Williams is a fantastic place to launch into I-banking-- or not. I can see many reasons to transfer from NYU to Williams but can’t imagine the reverse.
