    hi i was just wonderin whether anybody would be able to tell me what degree would be best if i wanted to become a stockbroker?.....i think it would be economics however im not sure whether a Bsc or a Ba degree would be better or whether it would be better for me to do economics on its own or maybe do economics with econometrics

    After much research I found that having a BA/BSc won't make any difference in Economics. Having taken it with Econometrics would make little difference but I suppose it's a good thing. Another way to get into stocks would be by taking a maths degree.

    Economics. BsC and BA are the same just different titles.

    Sometimes with a Bsc your course would focus more on the stats side maybe rather than philosophy, politics links.

    I know for geog if you do more physical geog then you can get a BSc whereas if you do more human geog then you can get a BA. e.g my parents both went to UCL to do geography and im pretty sure my dad got a BSc and my mum a BA...although I'm not sure. Same would be true for Psychology as well.

    Generally that's true, but Cambridge is one of the most mathmatical economics courses around and it is a BA.

    Fair point, but doesn't Cambridge *only* give out BA's? I may be wrong but I thought that whatever course you did at Cambridge, if it was a Batchelor (instead of a Masters) then you got a BA - be it in Engish, Economics or Engineering!
    Do feel free to correct me if I'm wrong though...
