Hello, I am trying to decide between transferring to UT Austin with a major in economics and a finance minor (by using the BEOP program) or going to USC Marshall to major in business administration and have a finance emphasis (which is the same as a finance major). Also by the way this is for undergraduate.
Finance is my true passion and it is what I want to have a career in. At UT I would be taking 4 finance classes in McCombs or I would take 8 finance classes at Marshall.
USC offered me about half tuition (so about 30k for everything) and UT Austin will be 30k for the first year and I should be able to be have in state tuition after my first two semesters.
It would take me 2.5 years at USC to graduate and 3 years at UT to graduate.
I would attempt to transfer into McCombs after my first year but I do not want to put that option in my decision making process because it is very competitive to internally transfer. I am also scared I would be completely overshadowed by the finance majors at McCombs and it would be almost impossible to get a job in finance when I am competing against them.
I also hope to work on Wall Street one day. I have only taken one finance class so I do not know exactly what area of finance I want to go into.
Any help or advice would be appreciated
