Major: Business - Management and Administration (This Major's Salary over time)
I will start out by saying that I am glad I went to state. I have always been interested in international affairs, travel, foreign language, the works. I got all of that at SDSU. Truth be told, you can get a good education anywhere if you apply yourself. I majored in International Business. That is a very broad major with a vague definition, and it definitely covered all of the material that I am interested in. Having said that, the first question I am always asked is
what is an IB major?

If you want a well defined major that employers are immediately familiar with, and one that you will find in very high demand, I would suggest accounting, assuming that you are a business major. As for me, I found IB very interesting. However, I have to confess that I never really used it, at least not for employment. That is because I had been in the military before college and discovered that after all was said and done, I preferred military life over business/office/cubicle life. Because of the military, I already had two different trades, both of which I have used to accumulate a healthy sum over the years. Again, I'm glad I went to SDSU because I learned some things that I would not have learned elsewhere and in fact, I kept on studying business, economics, culture, and foreign language long after college because I love those subjects. There are many things I love, but don't have time to do them all. For example, if I could, I would be an aircraft mechanic and an accountant (or a marketer, or a financial analyst, or a teacher) at the same time, but there just aren't enough hours in a day. If I could give an aspiring SDSU student (or any student) some advice I would say the following #1) Major in what you love because you will find your way if you are persistent. #2) How you manage your money is far, far more important than what you do for a living. That means for starters, don't go into debt to finish your education. Trust me, you will be glad you didn't. Once you get your job (title unimportant), work hard, but don't spend alot. If you can follow that advice, I guarantee you that you will find opportunities you never thought possible.

Lots of wisdom in what you said! Colleges should have all freshmen read your posting when starting out…
