Help with picking specialisation (physics/economics)

  • Thread starter Link
  • Start date
Doing a joint masters degree with major in Engineering Physics and Minor in Economics. I have been evaluating my interests and come up with a shortlist of potential specialisations i am interested to work with in the future. I do not want to do a phD. My goal is to earn as much money as possible, and according to Labor Departments occupational outlook handbook, engineering manager is the way to go. I'd appreciate if someone could comment on the best combination of specialisations that will be useful for this purpose from the list below.

Possible specialisations in Eng. Physics (pick one):
Applied Mechanics
Optics and Photonics
Theoretical/Mathematical Physics
Atomic Physics and Elementary Particles

Possible specialisations in Economics (pick two):
International Economics (Trade, monetary policy)

so many problems with this methodology for picking a career. Do what you are passionate about.
