I'm going to do a Bsc in Econ at LSE and was wondering what optional module is best for my career/interest in the first year. I am between Elements of Accounting and Finance (AC100) and the Internationalisation of Econ Growth since 1870 (EH101). I plan to take FM212 in second year and then the Finance courses in third year.
At this stage, I want to work in IB or in private equity. My guess is that AC100 is probably better in that case. However, I am doing an Econ bsc and knowing/understanding some economics history is fundamental imo. I might also instead follow a professional path more related to econ and not finance, who knows.
What do you think?
...or just paranoid?
