I am a college senior, graduating next year. I majored in mathematics and philosophy. Later in college, I decided not to go into academia and pursue finance instead. In fact I read a couple of books on option theory during college, and I loved it. I have good results from national math olympiads, so my math is really good. But the problem is that I do not want to take math courses any more and drop the math major and complete philosophy major instead. Now I am stuck with the following options:
1. Complete the math major, do a masters in math or math finance
2. Drop the math major, complete the philosophy major, take a year studying MA in philosophy and then write CFA and try to find work. is really attractive to me
I want to get masters in either of them, but preferably in philosophy solely for the purpose of intellectual satisfaction. I know this question has been asked probably hundreds of times, but do you think the major I choose or subject I get the masters in I get matters long term? My grades are good, but I am torn apart between possibilities and don't know what to do.
I have to decide what to do by the end of the summer, so I really need help.
Thanks for your time!
