Need help deciding my business-related degree path!

by Aricreatesmusique. Posted on Sep 13, 2020    2    2

Hey everyone! I hope you're all safe and healthy amidst this pandemic!

I'm currently a 2nd-year university/college student in a Scottish/British university (Heriot-Watt). The degree path I'm currently undertaking is a BA in International Business Management with Marketing with a Master's in Arts (Honors) in the fourth year. I can't seem to decide if I want to switch over into a BBA with Marketing degree path (Honors) or not, as subject choices within both degrees are almost identical. Should I stick to what I'm doing or switch over? I personally am extremely lost; especially in terms of what employers would prefer and whatnot, which degree would be better in the long run etc.

Any advice would be highly appreciated! I can provide you guys with the subject choices and all the other material needed!

Marketing is a skill like sales, not a degree. If you insist on a business school degree as someone with negligible experience, the only worthwhile one is accounting.

Business Management is particularly egregious - as someone with no experience, no one in their right mind would put you in charge of jack all.

A Masters in Arts is the worst - art is a skill backed up by a portfolio, not a worthwhile degree.

Go STEM or go home. Otherwise you're going to find out the hard way that you spent years in university to earn a dubiously employable piece of paper and provide a paycheck to some academics.

Talk to your profs or placement office staff. Good luck.
