What are some of the most useful classes you've taken? In general, in your specific field, etc... interpret it however you want.

macro-econ
micro-econ
financial accounting
managerial accounting
principles of finance
every math class i've ever taken

these classes build the foundation of knowledge for all business majors... except marketing. of course, majoring in marketing is a joke.

if finance is ryu and accounting is guile, then marketing is dan.

... morphy ... were you able to retain most of the information in those classes? ... or would you say that you are good at what you do more from job experience rather than what you learned in college ...

it's a tough call... without the rudimentary business classes i wouldn't have been able to function as a tax accountant.

i learned more in 3 months of tax season than in 2 years of classes. however i wouldn't have been able to understand or pick up anything on the job if i hadn't had that basic background first.

gracee's attitude is totally understandable. accounting is boring and most people hate to deal with it. as a result, a lot of stuff makes it onto my desk that the client could have easily done themselves. so i get to charge tons of billable hours for what amounts to a few minutes of actual work.

Depends on the business model.

From an academic standpoint, I agree about a marketing degree, but in the real world, marketing is the Queen of the Battlefield, and sales the King, while finance, logistics, hr, and the like are support staff.

Honestly my literature courses were the most important classes I took, having a direct impact on my career. My primary function as a professional is to communicate. I write several hundred emails a week, many of them introductory letters to prospective clients.

i totally agree with you. in a marketing career, literature and writing courses would serve you far better than any marketing 101 class.

agreed. maybe its because i'm at UCSD which isn't a strong marketing/business school, but all the marketing classes I've taken are pure BS.

with my major, i'd say my most useful class was research methods. there, i learned how to conduct research, different testing methods, etc.
