To me, and as a matter of fact, it is not really the course you studied in the University that makes you, it is the uniqueness in you. What you would be in the nearest future is not solely determined by the course you studied in the classroom of your university, rather your determination, the excellence in your attitude, the great things you can offer and how creative you are.
Personally, I studied accounting, but am doing something completely different from that today… and am happy.
