Economics Major Not Necessary for Business Training
Business School Dean Recommends Concentration in Student's Favorite Field
"Anthropology or the Classics may be just as good preparation for business school as Economics or the Sciences." it was stated yesterday by Boyce F. Martin '30, Assistant Dean of the Business School, who each year interviews candidates for admission to the School.
"If you think you want to go into business, but are greatly interested in some particular field of study, by all means concentrate in that field," he explained. You will do best in it, and will not be at a disadvantage in business, because this training can be put to good use in some specialized branch."
Dean Martin explained that the Business School has no requirements except a college degree. But he emphasized that a student planning to go into business should take as many courses in Economics as possible. He further recommended that such a man should concentrate in this field, if he had no consuming interest elsewhere.
"Concerning the perennist science is liberal arts quarrel," Martin continued. "let me say" that I don't think it makes any difference, one way or the other. If a man is interested in science, he certainly should take some scientific courses, but this isn't necessary in most branches of business."
