Why do people choose to go into business/finance/economics?

<p>I'm debating on whether or not to go into a major in this area or into the area of medicine. I want to know why people choose to go into the other area besides that it has good money.</p>

<p>I like economics because it's a practical field that effects our lives each day and it's applicable especially in current times. Besides that, it's interesting to me :)</p>

<p>I chose business management because I knew I wanted to manage or own my own business in the future, also because it's a degree that you can apply to almost any area later on.</p>

<p>It may be hard to believe, but I (and other people who have posted before me) am interested in business and economics. I like solving budgeting issues and managing things. Many people go into business because, again like me, they want to eventually own their own business.</p>
