Help, I don't like business administration
Hello

I am urgently looking for help with my little problem, namely that I am currently studying economics in the first semester and am dissatisfied or shocked!

I hate the subject with a passion that I would never have believed myself capable of. At the time, I only felt about myself because of my parents, who would have liked to have had a Wiwi daughter after a lawyer and a doctor.
Personally, I was interested in studying art history, German philology and / or English studies, but since the job opportunities look rather ughh, so bad, I was persuaded by the idea of ​​studying business administration. Big mistake. Already in the upper level in Maths-Gk I just slipped past the lower course, but acquaintances and relatives trickled into my ear that I could still do Wiwi.

So my question is, is it worthwhile to continue studying Business Administration and Economics with such motivation and only pass exams at the second or third attempt?

And if not, can you suggest alternative courses of study and / or corresponding career opportunities?

Thanks in advance !
Re: Help, I don't like business administration
If you study this out of compulsion, it will never work.
I will also study in the direction of business administration, although maths is not really important to me, but it was my wish and not that of my parents ... then there is a completely different motivation.

Study what you think is right, everything else will lead to nowhere.
And your career chances will not be good either if you master your studies terribly.

think about it.

Why so pessimistic? So far you haven't written an exam, just wait and see! Maths in WiWi is of course the most difficult subject - but not more difficult than GK Maths. With a little practice, it can always be done. And the rest of WiWi (with the exception of tax-strangling) is pretty simple. Anyone can do it! So just try it!

The question that you should ask yourself much sooner: Do I want to do a business economics job later? Because there is also life after university. And what is even more important: do my parents know better than me what I want to do?

If you only study for the sake of your parents and trust in good job opportunities, if you are unlucky you will become an XWZ! It was similar for me: I didn't really want to go to university, but my parents knew better. And since the job opportunities are so good, I let myself study maths.

And now I've been unemployed for 2 years, despite my studies and I somehow blame my parents for it. This is anything but good for our relationship.

So this is the question you should be asking yourself!

The stupid thing is I have now the first three exams behind me and have not been able to write a word on paper And I think that it won't be any different on Tuesday at the next one. I should have mentioned that it is not just a problem with math but the whole economy etc.

Thanks for the quick first answers

Re: Help, I don't like business administration
I can't tell you much about business administration because I don't study the subject, but in general it is probably not a solution to take a course just because of the parents.
Especially since you notice so early that it does not meet your expectations, you should seriously deal with a termination. The point is not only that the course lasts at least a few semesters up to the bachelor's degree (ie still many exams, still a lot of time to deal with exactly this material), but also that there is a large number of business students and only those with really good qualifications get such jobs. Would that be the best for you after a hated degree, fooling around in a mediocre job because the motivation didn't give you any other grades?

I understand your fear, especially because of the job opportunities, and I wouldn't simply advise you to study art history or English for a BA (I studied in that direction and on a BA the subjects are absolutely meaningless), but maybe there are alternatives? Maybe it doesn't necessarily have to be studying?
Now you still have all the options to rethink and reorient yourself, and I would take advantage of that. Once you've wasted years on business administration, it won't improve your situation.

Now a smile crossed my face for a moment ^^ That sounds somehow like: "Actually, I would much rather study something that is about eating ice cream with my friends, petting small puppies and listening to a happy song Lips bouncing over meadows of flowers ". No degree is perfect and sometimes you have to bite through

You should probably go clean your crystal ball ;-)
It's not that the student doesn't want to achieve anything, but you should study according to your inclination and a subject that you hate cannot be the right one and you can probably never be successful there, which leads the whole thing to absurdity.
Of course you have to bite through in (professional) life, but this usually only happens with the right motivation and this cannot be to satisfy the parents.
Kykna may find an apprenticeship much more interesting or find its way around a less diversified course of study. To immediately conclude that there is naivety just because business administration is not right ... * cough * ... is a bit bold.

Why do you smile when you read that a student is very unhappy with her subject, which she never wanted to study anyway and for which she apparently has no talent?

It has absolutely nothing to do with "petting puppies" (?), "Eating ice cream with friends" (?) And "jumping over meadows with a happy song on your lips" (?) If someone is not at all coping with his subject because he obviously has no interest and, above all, no talent for it. How silly is that?

@ Kykna: Don't take such silly posts to heart! And don't let yourself be persuaded that you have to "bite your way through" if you are absolutely unhappy and never wanted to study the subject yourself!

Re: Help, I don't like business administration
Ok, business administration won't work there.

How about teaching with interests?

Re: Help, I don't like business administration
I had the same problem. I studied law to make my parents kind of proud and I couldn't get by at all. I have de-registered and am looking for an apprenticeship. I always wanted to study art history or linguistics and I find it incredibly interesting, but I only encountered negative opinions.
Exactly, think about teaching. Unfortunately, my average rating is not that good and I have a hard time getting hold of such a course. But I think that would be an alternative.

Do not let it get you. The problem is totally normal and many students change courses or orientate themselves.
