ECONOMICS & FINANCE? FINANCE & CS? ECONOMICS & CS?

I am first semester sophomore at a semi-target state university about to apply to the business school to declare my major and complete my upper division courses. I know that I am interested in the buy side and am attracted to Asset Management, wealth management, portfolio management, and equity research. My question, however is what to do with my degree. I am currently taking classes in computer science to earn a minor in computer science and was planning on double majoring in Finance and Business Economics (both a BS degree from the business school). I currently have a 3.51 GPA. My question however is should I focus on my GPA and major in either Finance or BE and keep my minor in CS or double major and drop my minor. I am interested in CS but do not see myself doing it as a part of my job later on, but have heard from many that CS is a great skill to have. What would you recommend?

Im no expert so take the following with a grain of salt. Focus on GPA with a relevant major i.e Finance and economics. These seem to be most prominent on the street. I would use your minor to explore your intellectual interests. I am planning on double majoring in Economics and English or Economics and Philosophy for that very reason. Good luck.

Would it be worth the time to take two extra math classes and major in finance and minor in computer science and mathematics?
