    A finance major is very broad. Finance is only boring if you dont enjoy it. I love my job as a hedge fund accountant for an investment bank. It is always challenging and interesting. I can imagine a portfolio manager/trader role would be anything but boring. Could be stressful though.

    - if your grades are good you could move into investment banking. Striking deals and managing the deal process is a big money field (100k first year out with 500k bonuses commonplace)

    - research analyst

    - trader (equity, derivatives, bonds)

    - you could even move into accounting if you have enough accountancy subjects in your course

    Further list of jobs below:





    Bond Manager

    Budget Analyst

    Business Analyst

    Business Credit/Loan Specialist

    Claim Adjuster/Examiner

    Collection Agent

    Commodities Trader

    Consumer Credit/Loan Officer

    Credit Counselor

    All of the above would MAY require further study. For example CFA for the first 3 and CPA for accounting.

    I think it's boring. You can get lots of jobs with a finance degree, banking, investment and financial services, budgeting, I just can't imagine it being very fun.

    Bank manager.

    It's not boring if you have a great personality and good ambition and are able to climb the ladder.

    The only thing fun about it is being the CFO of a large company. These people have incomes in the millions of dollars. Money is never boring!
