As a business student, I find this to be quite startling. Why would you study finance, marketing, accounting, etc. if you’re not fascinated by it?

Business Graduates Show Least Interest in Their Work, Poll Finds

Business is the most popular course of undergraduate study at U.S. colleges and universities. It is also the one most likely to produce people bored with their jobs.

Those are findings from a survey of 30,000 graduates of all ages conducted by Gallup with Purdue University that compared four large categories of majors: business; social sciences and education; sciences and engineering; and arts and humanities. It found business students are the least engaged in their work and, in a twist, not even the most economically secure. That honor falls to science and engineering graduates.

“My advice to Americans, especially young people, is that if you make a decision about what to major in based on how much money you want to make, you might end up disappointed, not only with your first job but with your overall career,” said Brandon Busteed, executive director of Gallup Education.
