So I've been looking around and it looks like BAs in Econ (from non-targets) are a lot less marketable than Finance/Accounting majors. This concerned me because I'm currently majoring in Econ and I'd be able to graduate in 1 year. I could add another major like Finance and graduate in 2 additional years on top of that.
Would my job situation be that dire that I should consider double majoring, even though it would take me 3 years to graduate? Or would I be fine graduating with Econ w/ electives in Finance and Accounting (possible minor)? I have a 3.5 (projected final: 3.6-3.7) GPA and want to get into F500 Corp Fin or Credit/equity/investment research.
