Over the past few years I have actually developed a different skill set than most engineering majors. I added the business minor during my sophomore year, so I was introduced to the principles of accounting and finance at a pretty thorough level. I studied financial accounting (vs. managerial accounting) which taught me how to organize a companies’ finances for presentation to stakeholders. I also studied finance which taught me how to evaluate the time value of money given variables such as initial investment, inflation, and rate of return. Although I haven’t gotten a tremendous amount of use from this knowledge so far, I see it being quite useful once I enter the workforce next year.
