Psych major + minor?

<p>First post using this site!</p>

<p>So I'm in my last year of college and I'm a psychology major. I have just enough space to squeeze a minor in. I want to go into business/management. Strongly considering grad school.</p>

<p>Does a minor really help out there?</p>

<p>I was thinking either </p>

<p>A) econ minor - very difficult, pretty big course load. Most of classes are econ theory which I personally have no interest in and it seems kinda useless in real world.
B) math minor - only 4 classes to take and I can do P/NP.
C) accounting minor - probably what I think would be most useful for me. But I don't think I can graduate within a year as it's very sequential.</p>

<p>My suggestion would be a plain business minor if your school offers it. But definitely do accounting if you can graduate in time. If you can't, then don't bother, since it's not your major. </p>

<p>Do you have any co-op/work/internship experience? If not, you'll probably have a tough time getting into MBA programs straight out of your undergrad.</p>

<p>Unfortunately there is no plain business minor at my school</p>

<p>would love to get into MBA in some... distant future and alternate universe where I win the lottery. I honestly have some decent internships and job experience I think, but as a psych major, i know i'm not as marketable or equitable as other majors.</p>

<p>I think MBA's not really something I'm concerning myself with atm. I like to work a couple years first. I wanna get into a masters program in I-O Psychology or management consulting</p>

<p>psych and econ would be pretty interesting. econ really boils down to psychology anyways!</p>

<p>If the economics minor enables you to graduate in time, then go for it. If you can manage accounting though, that's certainly the most practical of the choices.</p>

<p>If you're concerned about immediate employability, just take a core set of business courses---econ, finance, management, marketing, accounting. You don't need a formal minor, especially as you have some work experience/internships. </p>

<p>You're probably fine for an MBA with what you have, though you should have a economics principles course and get 2-3 years work experience first. Quantitative skills will help you too, so you may have that with the math courses you've already taken.</p>

<p>For I/O psychology, relevant areas that could help might be a core set of business courses; econ courses (behavioral econ, labor econ, etc.); quantitative courses (math, statistics, computer science, operations research)---you choose.</p>
