You should do what excites you and what you feel passionate about. If you feel strongly about going into business you should do that, but if you feel strongly about the Army you should do that.

Personally I worked in music, then joined the Army at age 27. After 4 and a half years in the Army I am back in the business world.

So really, you need to pick what you want to do, and what corresponds to your abilities.

Which ever direction you choose it doesn't have to be your permanent decision. My husband did an undergraduate degree in economics then took a break and joined the military for 5 years. After that he went back to school and completed a Master's degree and then started working in business. I think he is very happy that he had the opportunity to do both.

As others have said, it doesn't have to be an "either/or" choice. It is possible to do both. The military can provide a lot of leadership development at a young age that will benefit you later if you decide to enter the business world. I have several friends and coworkers who entered the military first and after completing their service, went back to graduate school. They have all been very successful at making the transition from military to civilian. The most important thing is that you enjoy what you are doing. Both careers will be challenging, but worth it if you enjoy the work.

Stephen recommends the following next steps:

  • Research what benefits the military offers that will continue to help you if you decide to leave the military such as educational assistance.

Hello Kirankumar, why not do both? You can enter your branch of service of choice and they will pay for all or some of your schooling. Business is also a great broad major that will apply to all companies.

Angela (Angie) recommends the following next steps:

  • Here is the link to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics for researching majors, I've pulled up business and finance majors: https://www.bls.gov/ooh/business-and-financial/home.htm
