Mistake like this on a cover letter will get you a straight rejection. No prospects.

There is no need to be so harsh. He was asking about the prospects of a BBA in general, not about his own prospects.

You can do jobs that don't require a specific degree.

It's more advisable to do professional degrees like accounting, engineering, etc. Failing that, do something that you cannot pick up later in your life. For ex, you probably can learn about management on your own, but you probably would be able to learn about engineering maths on your own.

They are not professional; maths and chemistry would be very good foundation degrees for higher degrees.

Avoid Psychology.

just do whatever you are interested in, even psychology. important thing is to do well in it. what is the use of going into accounting / engineering if you are just going to end up flunking or scraping through?

no point doing a professional degree just for the sake of it... typical singaporean mentality to define a good education in such narrow terms. that is bad advice which might just cause needless years of pain.
