What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?
In hindsight, I would have done a Finance degree instead of an BA in Economics. I don't think it would have mattered much in the current job that I'm in, but I think it would have given me more knowledge of the market. But there are plenty of opportunities to learn more 'real world' market aspects through in-house training.
