I have applied to a physics bachelor degree. When I'm finnished with that I hope to have a chance applying to some schools in the USA (graduate program).

But I'm also interested in economics, and I have heard that some schools offer students with background in physics and such specialized MBA programmes. Does anybody know something about this? Which schools is it?


By the way, when I take my physics bachelor, do you think my univ. can help me choose courses, so I can apply to the more engineering oriented programmes in universities around the world? I want to work in industry when I'm I am finished...

Thanks!
