First, this can be a first step into countless fields.
Second, I can walk around the office and find people in almost every area of the company with a degree that wouldn't be what you expect. I, for example, head a marketing department. My field of study was Biology (Genetics). Country head for our Service organization has a degree in Opera. Colleagues in Sales, Marketing, Contracts, Proposals, logistics, communications, product management, IT, service leadership, technical support leadership all have a degree or diploma you wouldn't expect.
Yes, but that's because they couldn't land to their field once they got graduated and then they start off with their career else than their concentration and then slowly grow their career to something else. This is very common and I know.
My wife works in I.Bank and their bosses are engineers, not BComm.
But when you choose your field (and you still; have to chance to chose what you study), you want to study something that you interested in PLUS you know there is a demand for this field once you get out.
No body want to pay 3-4 years of university tuition and come out not able to get a job and realize what he/she studies is not what the market have to offer.
