I don't know what this "market economics" thing is some of you are mentioning. A US thing probably, unless you mean marketing and economics.

I studied economics at a top university. My cohort did the following after:

Academia
Investment banking
Management consultancy (BCG, Bain, McKinsey)
Professional economist - government civil service or economic regulator or international organisation like the IMF
Professional economist - economics consultancy
Industry - finance dept or strategy dept

All are very good and interesting jobs. No-one went into sales.

I think studying free market economics should be prioritized more


My cousin has a masters in market economics. She sells insurance to make a living.

Well you can make a good living selling insurance but I debated studying economics in college I think be a economics professor would of been nice I have a friend who studied economics and now he is a banker I am a sociology major and now I sell oil and gas leases which is why I studied sociology I also buy oil leases


market economics = sales OR academia

Good point

Another myth, biology is fun....watching animal planet is not quite the same as dissecting snails or watching mice eat each other when some student in your group forget's to feed them during the holiday break.

Ya your right field dressing a deer is on a whole other level than watching Animal planet

Architecture is not even on those lists. That feeling you get when the rest of the world writes you off as a niche.

At least we get to top lists such as https://blog.prepscholar.com/hardest-college-majors

I'm sure Fnord is going to accuse us of merely being engineers who can't do math. :wink:

Some of the most creative and open minded people I met on campus were design, fine arts and architecture students.
