Stuck between engineering or doing math+business for undergrad

  1. Mar 27, 2015 #1
    Im 17 senior year high school in india.
    I want to study applied math and business for undergraduate in university. Is it possible doing both at the same time? I want to do my undergrads from us most probably. Ive also taken physics,chem, math in high school as my main subjects. I havent taken business as a subject in high school. Can i still get admission in uni. though? What are the career prospects in studying applied math and business? Im worried if do this then i might lose a lot of time and money as it could become hard getting good jobs and stuffand might not be able to pursue my goals.. My interests are in - quantum physics, math computation etc.There is a hype of engineering in india so most students study engineering here just to get jobs and **** . Even im stuck here choosing between engineering or **** but i wanna do something different. Here in india noone gets good respected paying job opportunities unless if youre an engineer, doctor or a lawyer. I just wanna know what are my job chances if i select these subjects ? Ive heard that its pretty hard for graduate math students to get jobs in companies and they most prolly wind up as teachers in schools. I want to do something big, something great. Like for example, running a huge business and being very successful in my field. Im very confused regarding what field to pursue right now.Please advise me regarding this i would greatly appreciate it . Thanks

    Yeah why not? Math and business sound good together, especially stats. Big workload though.

    Yeah but what about the career opportunities in this field? Do you think this field this more profitable than engineering?

    Extremely broad fields. Thousands of possible careers. Forget the money, do what you enjoy the most.
