Would a Physics BS, and an MBA give me a positive job outlook, or would the two look completely unrelated and useless to prospective employers? I'm afraid of what getting a Physics BS might do to my future. I will have a Associates Degree in Science at the end of this semester from a local community collage, and need to make a final decision on my transfer major now. The job outlook on this forum a Physics BS seems pretty bleak. Very Bleak. But my plan is not to work in physics. I don't want to be a lifetime student, nor teach. I wonder what opportunities would be available in industry. I never really had a plan for my occupation, but I have a few ideas of what I'd like to do. 1. I want to work in some manufacturingish type industry, and I want to make decisions. (Analyzing and solving problems is one of the reasons I enjoy physics.) 2. My great plan is to get a BS in Physics, and get into some sort of industry setting. 3. From there I hope to get my company to pay for me to get an MBA. The reason I am studying physics is because the area really interests me. Reading about things I will be learning, like the spin of a nucleus, gets me excited. I don't know why this is; I know this information is useless in the real world. I have considered pursuing an engineering degree, but am afraid I won't enjoy the curriculum as much as I do with physics.
