Finance as a major in college can lead to many fulfilling and rewarding career paths, many of which require excellent Excel and analytical skills. To list out a few of the options:
Corporate finance/ FP&A: in this field, you will work on budgeting, forecast modeling, and lots of powerpoint slides/deck to present to the senior team of the company. Expect some tight deadlines, last minute changes, and even some late night getting slide deck ready for board presentation.
Investment Banking: this is a rigorous field of finance where you will be working on deal transactions, buying/selling companies, merger and acquisitions, etc. However, due to the nature of the field, it also requires lots of traveling, time commitment, sudden and tight deadlines, late nights,... The pay is very well and can be very rewarding, and there are also lots of exit opportunities.
Private equity/hedge fund: these are similar to investment banking except with a little less time commitment and travel. It's also harder to get in and usually requires some level of CFA to get in the door. A lot of people go into investment banking for a few years and then exit to PE/hedge fund for a better work-life balance.
