    Dentistry - guaranteed income, career stability.

    The business world is full of inequity. You can be lucky and work in an environment where your brain is stimulated and valued and you can just as easily end up working for some unethical immoral tosser and it is much more difficult to predict income and manage a career.

    If you did dentistry and changed your mind about remaining a dentist, you could go on and do an MBA. There isn't an equivalent the other way.

    Agreed with this. Dentists also actually do something rewarding day to day, to help people have nice smiles and reduce pain. And is also right to say that you can transfer from dentistry to a corporate career but not the other way round.
