Trojan Alumni Network and Management Consulting

<p>I'm thinking about majoring in economics and minoring in Spanish, and I want to know what the impact of USC's name and network do for opening job prospects, particularly in management consulting. </p>

<p>I will have about $5000 per year in loans, so is it worth the total $20000?</p>

<p>Also, would going the "progressive degree" route and getting my masters in Econ be a significant advantage?</p>

<p>I don't know why you wouldn't just major in Business Admin at Marshall...</p>

<p>I do know, however, that all the major consulting groups recruit at USC save for McKinsey (I don't know why haha). Boston Consulting Group, Bain, etc. all recruit at USC. I don't know if Marshall students have an edge over Econ students but I would assume that they do.</p>

<p>Don't know the answer to the last question. IMHO a masters or PhD in econ is worthless for a lot of reasons but I may be in the minority.</p>

<p>So do you think I should go with bizadmin? I was leaning toasted econ because I figured it would give me a broader education. But I want to do whatever gives me the best chance at landing a good job</p>

<p>I would definitely go with Business Administration if I were you.</p>
