What are you looking to major in?
Probably some sort of engineering.
This is Michigan, fergodsakes.
Sick me too. I might duel major in Business and engineering.
If I'm still a little undecided about what I want to do I might do that too. Just sounds like a lot of work though.
Yeah but if you get a business degree you can do so much
Yeah, good luck with that. Doesn't sound fun at all.
Haha nope but it should be worth it
Business is fun. Engineering is really tough. I'm in business and a couple of my really close friends are in engineering. They study about four times as much as me
Ahh shit that sounds terrible. I want to get into the front office of a MLB team so I may just go business and take a graduates in Sports Management at a school near a city with a team.
I know a lot of people in the sports management field here, if you get in let me know and I'll hook you up with them to talk to you about it and get some contacts.
Am I late to the party?
Take the engineering and get good grades. You can always come back and pick up the business in the form of an MBA. Or just take the basic business classes either as electives or by sticking around an extra semester. You need accounting (financial & cost), finance and marketing. Things like management and game theory are nice, but unnecessary.
Alright I'm going to do the early applicant thing so I should know if I get it or not by Novemberish.
Yeah I was thinking of doing that or just going to either RIT or Northeastern and taking a duel major in industrial business and industrial engineering. It all depends on whether I want to go into sports or take a safer route.
Or am I early?
I'm a sports management major but I'm going to get my masters in business at UM.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
Nice. Fantastic choice.

Thanks! I'm hoping I'll be able to find a job when I graduate.
That's my biggest worry about going into Sports management, there are only so many teams you can work for.
Yeah, it's hard to get connected but once you do, you should be ok. Luckily, I've started trying to get involved in the athletic department at A&M.
That's true and Michigan is close to Detroit so maybe I could build a connection to the Tigers since they do a Winter Caravan and visit all of the nearby colleges. I took a basic sports management class in high school and it was pretty cool, one question though, do you have to take any law classes?
I haven't had to yet, I can check my degree plan and get back to you, I know my parents want me to do something with law but I'd prefer not to.
Yeah I'm not a big fan of law but I might just take a basic class when I first get on campus along with an accounting 2 class.
I originally started out as a business major but I realized I hated it.
