<<I'm also working on undergraduate degrees in Finance, Economics, and Entrepreneurship... How valuable have you found having each of these? Any advice you might have for an undergrad?>>First off, I apologize for my late response to this, I guess I haven't been on this board for a while.I can't believe you are a Finance, Economics, and Entrepreneurship major. I though I was the only person around with this interesting triple major. I have found the finance background to be very helpful in my current corporate job (in finance nonetheless). Of the three majors this one is clearly the most marketable, and is the most practical for a corporate job. The Economics major I have used the least in my jobs, but I have defiantly found it to give me significant insight into various parts of the world, including the stock market. The EPS degree was certainty useful when I started my first business (that was an interesting experience), as well as in the jobs that I have had out of college. The EPS degree was the most useful of the three for me, as I have found many of the methods and concepts learned in that program are directly applicable to small and large business alike. If I had any specific advice for an undergrad. concerning the educational aspect it would be to get at least one practical degree. Finance works quite nicely in your case, as at least in New England, finance is probably the easiest major to get a good paying job in (other than various engineering/IT disciplines). From a work standpoint, I'd say at least one good internship is imperative to getting a good job. But most importantly, have a ton of fun, as even with the additional cash you get when you graduate, you'll probably won't have the convenience and time to enjoy life like in college for some time (maybe retirement?). I sound like I'm old, but I asure you, I just turned 25...Sam
