Should I do Marketing if I struggle with Economics?Watch
I have been interested in a degree in Marketing but I want to find out more on what it's like. My initial perception was that it was things like advertising, which I have an interest in, and something I think ties in a bit with doing English Language, but is there more economics sort of stuff to it? University websites say their own thing but don't really give me a clear idea.
So my question - particularly if there are any people that are doing Marketing now - is how similar or different is it to Economics? Would I enjoy it given how I find Economics?
Economics is to do with the allocation of resources. Marketing is to do with.. marketing. I doubt you'd struggle at marketing if you don't understand economic concepts. Maybe you learn the foudnation principles of economics such as things to do with price allocation / supply & demand / elasticities but you won't ever need to learn stuff like quantitative theory of money, Keynsian ideology, econometrics, lorenz curve and gini co-efficient etc.. etc..

Really though, it is the national economy stuff that I struggle with. Demand, supply and elasticity are pretty basic. I'm assuming that anything to do with the national economy has nothing to do with Marketing.
