Rebecca’s Answer

Either way, you would have a lot of opportunities. Ask yourself some questions: if you had to sit at a desk for 8 hours a day solving problems, what kind of problems would you rather solve? Engineering (how things work), or financial (how money works). Engineering can also provide opportunities to work in labs. Business often (not always) requires people-skills. Another question: if you could do research on anything in the world and time and money were not an issue, would you prefer a business problem or an engineering problem? Finally, google business and engineering degrees and find out what they require! One might feel more attractive than the other. The point is, figure out what you are more likely to want to focus on. Both Business and Engineering have a lot of sub-disciplines. so it is important to take those into consideration. For example, finance vs. management, or electrical or computer engineering or industrial engineering.

Rebecca recommends the following next steps:

Look up engineering degrees and business degrees on google.

Hi, Joshua. You might consider a liberal arts college that offers engineering degrees. Often the heavy engineering years are later, so you might be able to change directions midway as you learn more about your interests. Plus, with technology taking over so many roles that people used to do companies will need well rounded, critical thinkers to add the humanity to the technology. A joint liberal arts/engineering path might set you up well. You can always get the money experience later.

Simeon’s Answer

If you want a career, but you're not sure what degree to get, I would recommend getting a business degree and seeing what industries peak your interest. Even as a minor, a business degree can be quite helpful. Engineering is a very exciting field with lots of opportunity as well.
