I'm 26 and have my bachelor's in psychology. I'm interested at the intersection of everything where psych meets finance: behavioral economics, ethnographic market research approaches, and financial coaching. What career path do these interests best translate to, and what grad programs (MBA, MPP, MSAE) best 'fit' those paths?
Have an Answer?
Understanding how our behavior effects our own economy is a very interesting facet of our society. While I was working on my BA in Social Science I really enjoyed understanding how my behavior effected my own micro-economy The social science program I completed had a variety of psych and Econ classes.
Now that I have completed my MA in Adult Education, I have come to understand how to communicate with adults is a very important aspect of financial advising. I would advise any person wanting to work in the financial services industry to having some knowledge of how to communicate with adults and be able to advise them at a level where they will understand the overall message.
