I am a student of BBA in finance but I am so much interested in technology / computer programming. So I focus on programming more than my academic study. Is it right?

Rasel if you are debating whether or not to change a college major, you may be surprised to learn that about 50% of college students go through with changing their major at some point in time during their college careers. If you are pursuing a Bachelor's degree in finance, generally, the first two years of schooling will be dedicated to your general education coursework and some lower level core courses. These core courses may satisfy both major requirements and general education requirements.

THERE'S NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT – NOWS THE TIME TO TAKE ACTION

Maybe you picked a major before you found out what your true calling was. Or, maybe your parents pressured you into getting a degree in finance when you were passionate about programming. Whatever the reason, you’ve ignored what your naturally good at. If you force yourself be someone you aren’t, you won’t find balance in your life. Study something that truly reflects who you are and who you aspire to be. How can you expect to be satisfied in a long-term career if you’re unhappy with what you’re learning about right now? If you’ve discovered you hate chemistry, don’t force yourself to do it. You should keep in mind that it is possible to get into a career that’s different than your major. But, if you aren’t enjoying what you’re learning about, it’s time to shake it up.

1. FRIST THINGS FIRST – It is crucial to study your new major requirements and know them like you’ve never known anything before. Know what classes you need to take, what semesters they’re offered, and who’s teaching them. Every field you could possibly work has some sort of specific requirement. You already decided to put in the effort to make this change; you might as well do it right and be the best at it.

2. SEEK ADVICE – The only way you are going to be successful at anything is learning from the people who have already got it right. Whether it be a friend who graduated and is working, a professor, or an employee at your dream job, anyone who can give you the advice you need to put you on the right path is the person for you. This person is here to stop the worst thing that can possibly happen from happening: freaking out. They are here to let you know that what you want to do can be accomplished and will show you the steps to make happen.

3. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF – This is the most important step of the entire process. There will be setbacks, negative criticism, and a whole bunch of people telling you that you made a huge mistake. However, with all of that comes an unbelievable will to accomplish exactly what you want to do. You have to believe that even when things start appearing impossible, everything will eventually improve and get better. In the end, it’s not just about changing your major and your career path; it’s about changing your way of life. If it means securing your sense of happiness and accomplishment, consider it worth it. Believe that you have control over your life and the decisions that you make. You will be successful.

Rasel, sometimes we have to listen to the little voice inside of us that’s hinting at what we should do. If something isn’t feeling ‘right’ with your major, or you feel like you are on the wrong track for your future, don’t ignore it. Listen to it and determine if it’s just typical fears and stress, or if it’s a legitimate calling to make a major shift in your direction.

Hope this was Helpful Rasel

Rasel,

I can tell you seem conflicted. In most of the posts that require a decision, I recommend a pros/cons evaluation to be done. Take yourself away from the hustle and bustle of the world and into a place where you wont be bothered and feel safe and comfortable. Relax and think through what you want out of life and what steps you are willing to take to get there. Only you can decide your future and if you are willing to do what it takes to achieve those goals.

If you're more interested in programming, you might want to switch major to Computer Science. Computer Science is so much more than just programming though. There are a lot to explore if you're interested in technology and computer science.

Hi, In my opinion, you don't need to prioritize computer programming more than your academic study. You may learn and use the current technology to help you in your business study. For example, you can learn Python programming doing data analysis and Business Process Automation (RPA) through the internet or courses offered (Edx). Python is a great programming language for data scientists and automation.

You can learn both at the same time! For example if you are interested in R/Python, you can create financial analysis (portfolio analytics/stock market, forecasting, budgeting, etc.).

Hi, I think you have to decide what is right for you and you are making a good choice. I would suggest using your elective courses for programming or you can take other online programming training as well. There are a lot of options for learning coding and programming online these days. The good thing about programming/coding is that you really do not need formal education as long as you can prove that you can do it hands-on. good luck.
Thank you sir Rasel A. Translate

Fintech is a combination of finance and technology. That sounds like something you can apply both of your skills and interests. Ever consider getting a dual degree? Finance could be your domain field, and technological expertise could be a great career booster.
