Sir I am from India and I have 4 years of work experience in retail and 8 years of experience as an office assistant. And I am planning to do masters from Ireland in economics. But some consultants are confusing me as they say I should go for an MBA instead of MSc economics. Please suggest me the good option sir. Thank you 🙏

I don't really agree with you, those creating the financial models and doing the research and findings in finance are economist and mathematicians, and the not majors of finance, as well as those in investment banking or any analyst jobs are mostly econ grats or mathematics and statistics, quite funny but you hardly find a pure finance major, only those with CFA. But with a masters in economics you really need CFA to be a financial analyst. And like seriously your degree don't bring you the fattest salaries, it your skills and what you bring to the table.

I want to break into investment banking but eventually make into advisory into financial markets. I thought masters in eco/fin will make me technically strong.
What's your opinion on it? Thank you

Overall I think this was a great video. One thing it may have left out was how a person builds decision making skills. Economics teaches opportunity cost decision making–a skill that will help someone make decisions both in college and in the real world.

Maybe do the difference between a BA in economics/finance vs a BBA or BS. I would really wonder why finance majors do better than economic majors, as even at a bachelor's level most of economics courses are usually more quantitative than a finance major -quantitantive finance majors

How is the dallas market for finance majors vs econ majors? Do they end up in some similar roles such as analyst roles? Or is there a larger disparity between the two?

Thanks for your clip. I'm currently preparing for Econ. Phd and CFA at the same time. In fact, I'm devoting tons of time to writing papers for graduation(SSCI etc.) while memorizing key concepts and ratios for CFA. I feel lucky that they are complementary to each other since my field of research is corporate finance, and actually get a lot of practical knowledge and information from CFA since the research is close to mathematics and econometrics, a bit far from real world. FYI, I'm close to my final year of Econ. phd AND early stage for CFA.

My question is, how would investment job market view someone with Econ. phd along with CFA? I heard that economic academics won't really like I'm preparing for them at the same time, since it would take away more energy and time for papers. However, I would like more balanced view for my future career since I hope to increase the chance of getting satisfactory job, regardless of academics, investment and etc. Thanks in advance!

Hey! This was a super insightful video, I only wish I saw this before choosing my majors as Econ, Math and Stat. Would you suggest first year econ majors to take up courses in finance if they want to break that field. CFA might be too late and I've heard of FMVA too but still unsure. I'd appreciate any help!

I’m a freshman Econ major and I’ve been having trouble on what skills I should prioritize learning outside of class. I’m interested in the financial and tech industry. Should I start learning Python or Excel? Anything in particular that would be crucial to learn in Python or Excel for finance?

Universities need to have a combined Eco/Fin major 🙂 I know so many people that majored in both including myself. Both are complementary to each other. I wish I was able to take one major but more classes from both areas.

Why did you get an MS in Finance instead of Economics, even though you liked the concepts in Economics more?
