Would it be advantageous to obtain two bachelors degrees in mathematics (one in pure math and the other in applied math). Would this combination open up more career options (i.e. a quant/financial engineer, operations research, etc..) than just majoring in pure or applied math alone. I am leaning towards becoming a quant/financial engineer in some company in the future. Also, the two bachelor degrees in pure and applied math would be obtained in 5 years versus 8 years. So I figure that this is a good deal. What are your opinions?
