I'm not arguing that business is easier/harder than political science. I'm just pointing out that business majors get up their own assholes about how "demanding" and "difficult" their major is, despite that fact that business is a piece of cake (yes, including and sometimes especially finance). People who think that equivalent GPAs from liberal arts majors and business majors are somehow factored differently are just deluding themselves. Also, business majors and liberal arts majors just emphasize different skill sets; political science and history, for example, emphasize writing skills, research skills, and logical reasoning skills, whereas finance mainly requires good math skills. Is one of those skill sets rarer than the other, or superior? Probably not. Does a very skilled finance major have any better chance at succeeding in a political science class than a very skilled political science major has at succeeding in a finance class? No.
In your first post it came across as you saying that all business majors would be equally as easy as liberal arts majors. While I fully agree that most business majors are not difficult for anyone with half a brain, I would still have to say that some are difficult. Finance and MIS are ones that come to mind. At my university the average finance major's GPA is like a 2.7 while the rest of the business dept is a 3.3 and poli sci is 3.4-3.5. Of course every school will have different standards for each major and whatnot.
