Financial Engineering or Economics Major?
I'm going to a big three ivy, and am wondering what would be better to take for ibanking:
I can enroll in the engineering school and take Operations Research and Financial Engineering Major, or simply take an Economics course.
The engineering course is probably more difficult, and thus would look better on a resume. Especially because Financial Engineering is a more pragmatic approach to finance than Economics is. The downside is my GPA might take a hit, because engineering is more difficult and my competitors are smarter.
