How attractive is the Behavioral Economics, Policy and Organization major at Carnegie to major BB firms or other financial institutions?

It's to my understanding that CMU is a soft-target school for IBs and a target for trading, but I'm worried that BEPO as a major isn't as attractive as the more quantitative majors/Tepper majors within the job market. I am extremely interested in the subject material itself, but I'm worried about the marketability of my degree. Any insights on whether choosing BEPO as my major is a good choice, or switching to a (possibly) more appealing major such as the Tepper undergraduate business degree?
