There is nothing wrong with a business degree. If that's what you want. The principles you learn in a business curriculum apply to every single business out there. So in my mind, it's the most practical degree. If you take the accounting track, everyone has money. If you take the management track, there are management jobs out there (again, if that's what you want). Economics? Same deal. And so on.You need to evaluate the pros and cons of each choice that you could make to determine which one is really right for you. How long would they take to accomplish? At what cost? And what would each realistically get you, in way of a job, personal satisfaction, etc?In the short term, take any job that will feed your family, pay your mortgage, etc. while you are going to school. I come from a family of engineers. My dad and one brother are EE, sister is IE (Industrial Engineer), other brother is ME and IE. I also have BIL with degree in Economics and he is doing quite well also. My degree is Management, and I work in IT doing technical stuff. However, my business degree was invaluable to me.It's a matter of which one means the most to you. And unfortunately, only you can answer that.Good Luck!Louise
