Being a Business major I find that the field is very broad. Is it smart to shoot for a job in particular when deciding on what major to choose?

I was undecided until I got accepted into the School of Business at University of New Haven. Just making sure I chose the right major or if I should continue being undecided for a while longer. #business

Congratulations on being accepted to the school of business at University of New Haven. I agree with Steve - many of your early courses will give you an introduction to the various options within a business degree. As you gain a better understanding, hopefully you'll start to gravitate toward an area based on your strengths and interests. Additionally, do a little research about the job market and what's in demand. Doing something you love is the first piece; getting hired is the next!

Alyssa’s Answer

I find that a business degree has been wonderful for me, but I do wish I would have not gone the generalist or leadership route to an extent. I believe a focus on Finance or Human Resources for example would have given direction to my career. Instead, it was a blank canvas. If you truly don't know what direction to go, though, I would remain a generalist.

Steve’s Answer

Before shooting for a job you should figure out what you are passionate about and what you are good at. For example, are you a leader. Have you ever been a captain of a team or a president of a club. If so, if you like to lead you may want to narrow your major into Management. However, maybe you are good with computers and have some programming background, you may want to narrow your major into MIS..... Your first two years of schools are normally filled with standard science, english, etc.... Use that time to really figure out that direction you want to go and let your strengths and passion lead you.

Thank you comment icon Thanks Steve! Great advice. Kayla
