<p>I find this avenue very interesting and I want to ask you something...</p>

<p>The University I plan on attending offers two Economics programs. One is a business degree offered by the business college branch and the other is a liberal arts degree offered by the college of art and science.</p>

<p>My question is... which would be more worth it?</p>

<p>How is your business schools recruiting? Getting the BA might be advantageous if the business school has strong recruiting. The BA or BS route would most likely give you a more rounded education, generally you take fo support classes and electives for a liberal arts degree.</p>

<p>How would I go about finding out about the recruiting? Just ask the advisor at the business school?</p>

<p>Why would getting the BA be advantageous if the business school has strong recruiting? In this portion are you using BA to mean Bachelor of Art?</p>

<p>Would a more rounded education prepare me better for getting out there and into a job? I want to get out there and do something... research or fix problems. I hate out current economic climate, along with a lot of other people sure, but I actually want to get out there and do something about it!</p>

<p>In order to fulfil your aspirations, you need to get a PhD. Before, you have to prepare a route for yourself: if you plann to get an MBA, then choose an economics from the Art department, but if you plann to get a masters, then a business school is better.</p>

<p>If you want to be able to actually do something to change the economic system you need to be thinking about getting into politics. You can become an elected or appointed official, or if you want to be where the real change is at become a lobbyist.</p>

<p>Economics is okay if you have under a 3.812 GPA and thus were rejected from your own school's business school at some snobby state college.</p>

<p>Just curious, are you talking about UF? </p>

<p>As UF, there is a BSBA-Eco through the Business school and then a BA-Eco through the Liberal Arts school. The center curriculum is the same but you take Business core classes in the BSBA-Eco and electives, foreign language, and extra science with the BA-Eco. Sadly, econometrics is not taught in either or the level of math needed to pursue that.</p>

<p>I'm sorry, I meant get a BBA if the business school is strong. confusing typo.</p>

<p>It's the university of oklahoma (OU)</p>
