Default Chem+Business? Or not?

The primary question here is what career options are there for a graduate taking a free structure double degrees such as BSc in Chemistry and BBA.

I am currently considering the practicability of that option since I have interest in both degrees and am weighing it against that of Accountancy+Business DD. Thank you!

chemistry and bba is a good option if you would like to go into the chemistry industry, especially if you want to set up a company next time in pharmaceuticals or chemical manufacturing.

A lot of drug companies or those like GSK would be interested in someone with both a chemistry and business background.

Thank you studygm, though it might be possible that I am applying for some tied scholarship instead. Just wondering, how often is it that such companies hire people with that combination?

@LockT31W: Hmm, I would say partially because of interest and partially because my academic achievements are very closely linked to chemistry (attachments, h3 and other stuffs). Would that matter?
