I am a new user of this site, a high school senior who is seriously interested in a career in the financial industry. I have a few questions for you guys, and I was hoping I could get some advice.
I have been accepted to Georgetown University's Mcdonough School of Business, and granted assured admission after my sophomore year to the Kenan-Flagler business school at UNC. Kenan Flagler is "ranked" higher by a few sources, but what is the industry opinion on the two schools? Money is not a factor in my decision.
No matter which school I choose, I will have to choose between an Economics major in the college, or a business/ finance major at the business school. Does this distinction even really matter? I would assume that a finance major would be more on the practical side of the material, but do I-Banks really view this as a large factor when hiring?
I am desperate for some help here, thanks in advance for any advice you guys and girls have to offer.
