Hi, im a 21 year old student currently in my second year on my way to an associates in Management. I plan to graduate with my associates and then move on to my Bachelors. Now would it be wise for me to change my major to finance or keep up with the management major. I think that finance has a lot of job opportunities available after graduating. What does everybody think?

I'm a finance major and im being told that because i dont go to a top tier school, I should switch to accouting. Im too confused to give any worthwhile advice.

Despite the economy, a finance degree is in no way worthless. Not everyone goes to a top tier school, and yet they manage to work. You may not get a job on Wall Street, but the skill you learn is still useful to employers elsewhere.

As far as finance v. management, what interests you more? What can you see yourself doing? If you like finance, do finance. If you like accounting, do that. Pretty much, figure out which one fits you best, and go from there. If you like it, you'll be more passionate, interested, and willing to work harder. Also, I'd advise you to get as much experience as possible. Try for internships at every opportunity, it's extremely valuable when it comes to looking for a job.
