Undergrad here: Sports Management vs. Econ degree [#permalink] New post 05 Nov 2012, 13:36
Hi everyone! First post here on Gmatclub :-D

Here is my deal: I have been a student at an average 4-yr university in Michigan (Wayne State) for two years now. I was just accepted as a transfer student at the University of Michigan. However the issue is deciding what to major in with my plans being set on a top-MBA in the future. I cannot get a BBA since the application to Ross is an entirely different process.

My choices are slimmed down to Economics and Sports Management. I absolutely love sports and business/management and I feel like it's the right major for me, but I am afraid MBA admissions will down on it. Economics is not really my passion and it has a reputation of difficulty at UofM that is the biggest thing keeping me away; however, Economics would probably get me a better job and might be looked upon more favorably when I apply for my MBA.

Sports management is a small recruiter at B Schools. So you would want to avoid things that are not aligned with your future goals. Economics is not hard, compared with engineering/science its pretty easy. So take economics and study hard. Its not that tough. Donot run away from challenge.
