I am a sophomore and my goal in life is to work at a hedge fund or a trading firm. I got accepted 2 weeks ago to James Madison university. JMU has a finance degree (BBA) and a QFIN (BS with minor in math and econ + concentration in financial analysis) and I am very hesitating between the two degrees. Knowing if i choose the fin degree i will graduate in 2022, however, if i choose the QFIN degree, i will grad in 2023.
I am also planing to take the CFA on my senior year and apply to a grad school 2 years after my graduation from college.
I applied to JMU bc of their investment club. They have one of the best investment clubs in the US.
Please help me choose the path that will help me achieve my goal.
Thanks in advance!
