It will be a much more valuable experience than just asking people about their personal experiences and anecdotal evidence.

 

This. You will realize the requirements for landing a job in 'business' means a degree in accounting, finance, statistics, actuarial science, or other more quantitative degrees (even economics doesn't really cut it). Yes, there are people in 'business' with qualitative degrees, but they are not the majority. And if you want to work in business, you might as well just major in the subjects companies are looking for.

 

Maybe you don't like accounting, but take a look at the other degrees I mentioned.
