A lot of people at my school go into Ibanking, consulting, industry financial jobs, etc. All of them will say that their degree is in Finance, Economic Strategy, etc. But all of them technically got a BSBA with a concentration in finance.
I don't know anyone with those either. Most of my coworkers have engineering degrees, economics degrees, or finance degrees - real economics and finance degrees though, not pretend business ones.
Take what I'm saying with a grain of salt, of course - I'm only one guy at one company.
Also, I'm not saying you can't get a job in the "financial sphere" with a degree in business. I'm saying you can't assume you'll get a job virtually anywhere with that degree.
Wait, did you not read my post? I said all these kids say that their degrees are in finance or economics but on their transcript it actually says bachelors in business administration with concentration in finance. And it certainly isn't "pretend business ones" considering the amount of kids doing these types of jobs from school and the amount of banks and firms that recruit here. I don't go to an ivy but I go to a private school pretty far up there and on par with the lower ivy's and other private schools.
