I'm in my 3rd year of a bachelor of Commerce at Deakin Uni majoring in Accounting and Finance. Deakin has a strong accounting reputation but not so strong on the finance. I don't actually want to be an accountant I just think its important to understand accounting in the business world, i am much more interested in finance.
Recently I have worked out that I could fit in a 3rd major in Quantitative Finance.
My question is, in the honest opinion of professionals and non-professionals alike that trawl these forums, would a 3rd major in Quantitative Finance improve my employability by a finance firm, and would it significantly improve my real life understanding of finance?
The answer is dependent on the quality of the education at Deakin, but I can say that its been very good so far and I have no reason to believe that Deakin's QF units would be rubbish.
