International Trade and Finance Degree

Anyone doing this major at LSU? Would this be interchangeable with an international business degree? And if you got this degree, what is your job?

Engineering or you're worthless.


ETA: I'm getting a minor in Finance and I love it. I have no insight as far as answering your question though.

I think a Finance or Accounting degree is still a very good degree to have. Not everyone wants to be an engineer.

Knew a few people that were in this degree but have not graduated. This is actually an econ degree though right?

Yea, it's all econ, I think it might even be more econ than an econ degree actually.

You think an econ degree would be more beneficial?

Double majoring would be more beneficial. What's your end game as far as what do you want to do or think you want to do?

The international part basically requires you to be proficient in one, and that you are able to hold your own in a few others

It's in the department of economics, so you can't really major in both. As to end game I'm not really sure, I just like traveling and don't want to be completely broke, and I've heard you can make big money in International business

I'm not saying major in both econ and international trade and finance, I'm saying major in both econ and accounting or some business degree combined with an English degree.

What would be the point of double majoring with an English degree though?

Being able to write is a good skill in the job market. When you combine that with a business/analytical/math inclined field it's just something else that can set you apart from others if you perform well in school.

Econ and Accounting are completely different but both invaluable. Accounting will put you in a job quicker and more easily but econ will give you business perspective from a more macro level that you just don't get from accounting. JMO.
