I was hoping the hive mind could give me some advice on my education and career path. I am not sure exactly what I want to do as a career, but real estate development or banking are most interesting right now. I am currently in my second year of university at okay school, but one that has little name recognition. I am debating about the value of my undergrad, especially considering that I plan to get an MBA later. My options are to go to a good BCom program, likely UBC's Sauder, but it will cost my significantly in terms of time. I will likely have to add at least a semester to pick up the needed preqeqs and possibly longer because the area of focus that I want would likely be full for this year's entrance. The other option is to stay at my current school and go to their relatively poorly ranked school but I would be able to complete it more quickly and it would save a substantial amount of money because I could live at home. Also, considering many of you would be the people hiring my future self, how would an economics degree be seen by hiring managers? I am debating between an economics degree and a BCom. This is an area that interest me and although it deals in a far more theoretical realm seems to teach many of the same skills. I have little interest in actually being an economist, but rather plan to work in a large firm. Would it be seen as more of a worthless liberal arts degree? It seems with a plan to get an MBA that an earlier BCom degree is fairly redundant. Thanks for your thoughts. I am generally an A+ student (though the odd A creeps in). Please give me the benefit of being in the positions I want to hold in ten or twenty years.
