I had this random showerthought today.
Why are there so many different jobs and roles that you could get from a business or finance degree but so few from every other degree.
For example if you go to law school the only choice you have is what types of work you prefer, corporate, civil, family, etc. No matter which you pick everyone is becoming a lawyer.
Med school you just choose which body part you like the best to study. No matter which you pick, everyone is becoming a doctor.
Engineering you just pick your favorite type of engineering whether it's software, civil, mechanical but everyone is becoming an engineer.
Though in business and finance you could go into investment banking, sales, trading, corporate banking, capital markets, PE/VC, AM/PWM, consulting, research, quant, real estate, insurance, talent agents, or some corporate office role.
Why is it like this?
