as the title says, what can a bachelor in economics get for you in the future?
current situation is that i've developed this large interest in the works of economics but i'm still unsure as to what the degree can earn me.
what field/job can i qualify for?
thanks for your response.

IMO, there are lots of advantages to study in Bsc (econ) you will understand money, its behavior and importance. You will easily get the job as an accountant and bankers. I just say you should study on it it’ll be useful for you.
For the bolded part, you mean Econ grads can qualify for jobs as accountants/bankers? Can anyone certify this?

Because I've only heard of Econ grads going into public policy and management and things like that, but not in the accounting field.

your major really isn't very impt if you want to be a banker.
the school you are from is much more important.

an art history grad from yale would have a better shot at being a banker than a nus accountancy/business/econs grad.

there's quite a bit of info about being a banker in these two threads:

if you are an econs grad, you can do the ACCA professional cert to go into accounting.
