Economics Degree - Useless & Impractical?
People often say that studying economics is excellent preparation for a career in finance and the business world in general. Is this really true?
I've taken introductory courses in micro and macro, and they are nowhere near as useful or relevant as my finance and accounting courses. Maybe I need to take some higher level courses, but I fail to see how economic theory (utility maximization, demand/supply, labor markets, etc) is relevant to the world of finance.
