What's your college major?
I've always wanted to be a writer. So I went to college for an English major. Halfway through I realized that having an English degree wasn't going to help me sell books, so I dropped out. A decade later, I started out trying to work as a freelance technical writer. Now that's a full time job.

What about you?

Management. It was easy. Should have done some variation of what the above two posters did. Your success as a manager has very little to do with your education in management, IMO. Learn yourself up on banking and finance, and get in the right position, you'll be fine.

By pure luck, I did the opposite and it worked out. Got my management degree, but after a couple years of spinning my wheels, I got a job managing a bank exec's side business. I've been able to learn a lot more about financials by just spending time with him.

I learned literally 0 of what I do in the real world, in college.

I don't think I use a single thing of what I learned in college on the Finance and Management side. Honestly, I'd say the school really didn't prepare me that well (not like that their problem) and I used literally 0 of their resources to land where I am. And when I did go to them at first while in college they were not nearly as prepared for the side of the business I wanted to be in.

The only thing I learned was time management and that was how to wake up for an 8 am class after boozing heavily the night before.

Someone talked me into a Communications degree saying it was just as good as a business degree.

It wasn't.

What I do now I learned on my own and has almost nothing to do with my degree.
