Being a Financial Analyst With an Economics Degree
While becoming a financial analyst with an economics degree is possible, it is not the most common path. Many universities that only offer liberal arts degrees have economics as the closest major to business or finance. At these schools (most of the Ivy Leagues) it is more common to go from an economics degree to being a financial analyst. Since there are not many economist jobs, most people with these degrees make their way into finance, accounting, or other areas of business.
