.MASSHOLE.If you want to work in the business world (marketing, finance, entrepreneurship, etc) focus more on internships and connections rather than your major. If you can take some basic accounting classes, marketing classes, or the like, but this is not imperative. You will learn infinitely more from 1st hand experience.
Yeah experience is everything. Even jobs that 'require' a degree in the business world for the most part can be still taken by someone who has enough experience.
I dropped out of University after a year and a half to pursue my dreams as a professional Skier. Everything I learned since starting at NS has been 100% in the field with no formal training. I know that with 11 years of experience in online media under my belt, I could get any job I wanted if needed be with no diploma.
That being said - I actually wish I'd stayed in school. I jsut wish I was taking business instead of English.
The funny thing is that though you absolutely can learn things in the field, you make major mistakes that are really basic parts of business. These mistakes can set you back quite a bit and cost a lot to unwind. You end up spinning your tires on a lot of basic shit that a few years of business school would have taught you.
Plus, at school there are girls everywhere and the workload as compared to full-time is fuck all.
I think you're right, a good blend between some part-time practical experience and a general business degree are a good way to go.
"Hopefully it comes back the right way in skiing too.
Less rotations. More STYLE."
