I'm worse. I teased them by majoring in biology during undergrad. My parents are pretty Americanized, so as long as I become either a doctor, lawyer, or astronaut, they're a-okay with me.
I must say, I truly enjoyed this thread!My two cents, so I can contribute instead of just lurk:My African-American mother says: "What do you mean you're not happy!? You should be happy with what you're doing--you're making money, you have your own house--NOBODY'S TRULY HAPPY!!!"My sister's a nurse
What job opportunities (and salary) are there for a PhD in economics or other business degree? My interest in business 'management' is waning, but am curious about the academic/theoretical application of an advanced business degree?Part of my interest in engineering was the theoretical nature, which is also th reason im looking into law. im guessing a doctorate in business would also hinge on the theoretical side, unlike a MBA which (in my ignorance) seems mundane
