Hello, Zhiyus. I am glad to share some information with you. Well, I find a post on a website, which is about Transfer (although the student transferred from MKT to other major). I think it will help you to determine whether to transfer or not and think about how to transfer.

If you want to spply for other majors, you need to study some related courses or have related certificates. Therefore, if you are a business major and you want to register other business majors, I think that is easy.

When applying for interdisciplinary graduate students, many schools have requirements on their professional background, at this time, it will be almost impossible to apply for an interdisciplinary application.
But in most cases, applications in related fields seem to be acceptable, and a minor will help you more.

actually, it is not a big difference in bachelor, expect some like cs/bio/medicine, for business, it is almost the same or it easier to adapt to another under the business school, they all related to some degree.(KIRA)

If you want to apply to graduate school across majors, first of all, you can choose to double major or minor in another major during your undergraduate years. For example, a student who majored in English and is very interested in finance or accounting in the U.S. can choose to minor in finance or accounting during his sophomore or junior year. Second, if you do not have a minor, you can also enhance your background by doing an internship or reading a lot of books on the subject. Third, you can choose to take a GRE SUB, which is a better opportunity to prove yourself.

Cross-professional research applications require careful consideration and psychological preparation. First of all, you need to pay close attention to the industry dynamics of the major you want to apply for and expand your knowledge. In addition, you can go to seniors with similar experience for experience guidance.

Two key points for interdisciplinary applications for U.S. graduate students:
1. Basic courses required during the undergraduate period, no matter what your undergraduate major is, but American universities will require you to have studied the required professional basic courses;
2. To apply for professional background requirements, have you done anything related? Research or work or internship, etc., if you meet the above two, then you have the basic conditions to apply for this major.

With the increasing number of graduate students in the universities, students can consider choosing some less popular majors according to their own circumstances, which may be conducive to future employment. Thus, taking the postgraduate entrance exam for different majors is also a choice. But you need to maintain a high GPA score or GRE score to show your learning ability. If your GPA is not high enough, you can consider participating in related research programs, such as participating in a social survey or publishing a related paper. These may help you a lot.

I think the first step to applying for a graduate school is to choose schools and majors that can accept interdisciplinary applications. Generally speaking, most countries accept it, but it should be noted that some countries, such as the Netherlands, do not accept interdisciplinary applications from undergraduate students without a professional background. Generally, the requirements for professional background in Australia are relatively loose, and the comprehensive level of the school is very high, so it is a good choice for students who want to transfer their majors.

Our school actually has many examples of interdisciplinary applications to graduate school, but most of them are related to the undergraduate major. When applying, we can explain in our own material why we chose to change our major. As long as the reasons are reasonable, I think it is ok for them to accept the interdisciplinary application.

Cross-professional application for graduate students is a good choice. Now the demand for interdisciplinary talents in all walks of life in society is on the rise. But you need to pay attention to the requirements of the school. For example, many European universities do not allow students to apply across majors. There are also many accounting graduate students in the United States and Canada who are not allowed to apply for undergraduate accounting credits.

Appling the interdisciplinary program for graduate school is normal now, because there are more programs with cross fields. For example, the programs like science in data analystic requires students with major of Math or computer science, Fincance and Accounting requires students of Finance or Accounting. And for the students, attending the program of another major is also commonly, and it will be easier for the business students apply the business programs. If you are a accounting major students and want to transfer the major of Marketing for graduate school, you may need to earn enough credits about Marketing, and you’d better have the relevant intership to make you competitive. You can go to the offical website of the programs to see more requirements.
现在研究生院申请跨学科项目是很正常的，因为有更多的跨学科项目。例如，《数据分析科学》(science in data analysis)这类课程需要数学或计算机科学专业的学生，《金融和会计》则需要金融或会计专业的学生。对于学生来说，参加另一个专业的项目也很普遍，这对商科学生申请商科学项目会比较容易。如果你是会计专业的学生，想要转到研究生院的市场营销专业，你可能需要获得足够的学分

During your undergraduate years, some colleges will let you choose to double major or minor in another field during the sophomore or junior year, so we should make full use of this opportunity.
For those students who are already in their junior year without any minors, there is still room for you to change your background through relevant internships. For example, if you want to study finance in the U.S., you can do an internship in a bank, securities firm, or insurance company during your vacation to improve yourself.

In general, your undergraduate major does not need to be in the same field as what you plan to study in graduate school. It’s not uncommon for academic and career interests to change over time. With many prospective students looking to graduate school as an opportunity to make a career switch, schools are thinking about ways to make transitions more feasible. As you dig into your research and get ready to shift gears, here are a few considerations for pursuing graduate degrees that are unrelated to your undergraduate experience.
If you’re pursuing a master’s degree that is unrelated to your undergraduate major, you may find you need to make up some prerequisite courses or experience. These might include a minimum number of years working in the field, aptitude in a foreign language, or passing a macroeconomics course.
At some graduate schools, students can make up prerequisite courses during the first year in the program. At others, students must have prerequisite courses completed prior to their enrollment either at another institution or sometimes in a summer intensive class provided by the grad school they plan to attend. Schools can be particular about where they accept credits from or how long ago you completed prerequisite requirements so be sure to review their policies carefully to determine your next steps. The link is https://www.idealist.org/grad-schools/blog/undergraduate-degree-unrelated-grad-school, which shows some ideas on this topic.

If you want to apply for a program unrelated to your major, you need to do some preparation as an undergraduate. If you already have an idea, you can learn more about the major you want to apply for. You can choose minor courses or consult a professor to confirm whether you are really suitable for the major. Of course, after confirming the direction, you can consider changing majors in your junior or senior year and take relevant professional courses as much as possible. Grasp the opportunity to accumulate internship experience, which is an important factor for successful application. If you haven’t confirmed it, you should learn and try more different majors, and confirm which aspect you really want to continue in-depth study. If you can’t give full play to your specialty and find the future direction in this major, then change a major is an opportunity. Here are some suggestions you may need to know to apply for a master’s degree in different major.

Applying for the interdisciplinary program for graduate school is popular now, but what you need to ensure is that what you learn now is related to the major you want to learn in graduate school. For example, if your major is English or some language, you cannot apply for the computer science major because you lack the most basic computer science knowledge. It is too hard for you to catch up with other students and understand related knowledge if you enter graduate school.
But if you are an accounting student now and want to apply for the finance program in the future, it is ok. Maybe you can join related elective courses in the third and fourth years. You need to learn about the basic knowledge required in graduate school. Below is the link, you can find more information if you want: https://wenda.so.com/q/1534109091216636
现在申请研究生院的跨学科课程很受欢迎，但是您需要确保的是您现在所学的内容与您想在研究生院学习的专业相关。 例如，如果您的专业是英语或某种语言，则由于您缺乏最基本的计算机科学知识，因此无法申请计算机科学专业。 如果您进入研究生院，很难跟上其他学生并了解相关知识。
但是，如果您现在是会计专业的学生，并且想在将来申请财务计划，那就可以了。 也许您可以在第三和第四年参加相关的选修课程。 您需要学习研究生院所需的基本知识。 以下是链接，您可以根据需要找到更多信息：https://wenda.so.com/q/1534109091216636

Before choosing a cross-major entrance examination, we need to consider some problems. For example, some majors do not accept cross-major entrance examination candidates, not because of professional discrimination, but because the professionals are very strong, cross-major candidates are not competent for future study experiments. Have a part major to be able to receive those who cross major examinee, but must have a certain foundation, take an examination of hard to go up grind otherwise, even if take an examination of lucky go up, also can be a nightmare in later study career, such cross major take an examination of grind lost actual meaning. Therefore, we need to pay attention to the consequences of choosing a cross-major postgraduate entrance examination, to prepare for the future.

Some programs require special requirements, and cross-program applications are often not possible because your undergraduate program does not meet the requirements of your graduate program.For business students, it is not uncommon for them to study for a master’s degree in different majors. In business courses, knowledge of many majors is interchangeable.Of course, for some projects that require engineering assistance, such as financial engineering and other projects, it is not a good choice to apply for interdisciplinary programs that require strong professionalism.

My understanding of changing majors is mainly about business. If you majored in business as an undergraduate and want to apply to a different major as a graduate student, you should have no problem switching from business to media. Graduate business professional requirements have GRE/GMAT, but the media professional is no hard requirements about GRE/GMAT, but the requirements of IELTS or TOEFL may be relatively high.

If your major is far from your target graduate major, you should pay more attention to your internship or experience. For example, there was a WKU senior majoring in Finance, but got an offer of Journalism major from Boston University. That is because she had won a prize from the national debate competition and attended many international meetings such as APAC. Thus, when your target major has a big difference from your original major, you should gain more related experience to prove that you are capable of applying to this major.

If your original major and your target major are both in business fields, such as Marketing and Finance. You can take some Finance and Math courses as electives, or even you can get a second degree in Finance or a minor in Finance. This is to prove that you have the basic knowledge of your targeting major. Also, you should be prepared to answer the question of why you want to apply for Finance rather than Marketing in the interview. Moreover, you should gain more experience in the finance field when you select internships, such as investment banks or insurance.

It is normal to apply to graduate school across majors because we may find our interests change as we progress through the learning process and are exposed to a wider world as we grow. Since it is not the same field as undergraduate studies, adequate extracurricular activities and internship experiences are important to support interdisciplinary applications to graduate school.

There will be some constraints in the early preparation and late application for interdisciplinary study.
Determine the degree of connection between your major and the one you are applying for. For example，you’re a Management major student and want to apply for Marketing. These two majors are basically business majors, and they will not be restricted by their majors in subsequent applications. But if you want to apply to a wide range of programs, then you need to check the specific program requirements on the school’s website

If you want to apply for a major different from your undergraduate major, I think you should fully understand the learning content and form of the new major, the employment direction and employment situation, the development status of the major at home and abroad, and so on, so as to judge whether you are suitable for this major. I suggest you consult with students in the major, as well as professionals or HR who work in the relevant industry. HR’s opinions are also important because they can tell you what the company thinks about issues such as professional mismatches when hiring.
In addition, you need to explain why you changed your major in your personal statement, including the reasons, your advantages that make you able to do well in this new major, etc.

If you find out that you are not interested in the major of your undergraduate school, you might choose to change a major in a graduate application. However, Each major requires different knowledge. For example, if your undergraduate major is finance, but you want to apply for mathematics as a graduate application, then pure financial knowledge is not enough. You need some undergraduate mathematics knowledge, such as linear algebra or calculus. It depends on the pre-course requirements of the mathematics major of the graduate school you want to apply to. Therefore, I think that if you want to apply across majors, you need to know in advance the requirements of the prerequisite course of the major of the school you want to apply to and go to the prerequisite course. You can make up for your lack of knowledge through additional classes in the school or take some online classes to meet the requirements of the professional application.

You need to pay attention to the reasons for your application when applying for a different major. You can say that you want to learn more because you have already learned a lot in your original major. You want to learn some other majors to make you more comprehensive in your future work. For example, if you used to be a student of FIN and you want to apply for Master of ACCT to assist your financial study, it will be very good.

An Example of Interdisciplinary Major Application
The Interdisciplinary Major Program offers students with unusual interests, superior ability, and exceptional self-discipline the opportunity to design an individual program of study instead of pursuing a regular department major. The program hopes to attract proposals that show creativity, novel approaches to learning, and experimentation, but it does insist that the applicant be able to designate clearly a definite field of study which falls within the liberal arts and sciences. Arts Administration, Medical Ethics, Psychobiology, Irish Studies, Physical Anthropology, and Philosophical Psychology are examples of the kinds of programs that are acceptable. There are, of course, many others. The program is a Distinguished Majors Program and requires a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.4. Students generally apply in their third or fourth semester. Proposals made after the fifth semester cannot be considered. Students whose projects can be completed through regular departmental or interdepartmental majors will be asked to apply to those programs.

For students, it is indeed difficult to apply for a cross-professional program, especially if the major they are applying for is not in contact with before, coupled with factors such as language and learning environment, the learning pressure is also very high. Therefore, before deciding whether to cross-professional, you must think clearly about your actual situation and plan your studies for the next few years. And prepare for the future inter-professional.对于学生来说，申请跨专业确实有一定的难度，尤其是所申请的专业是之前并没有接触过的，再加上语言，学习环境不同等因素，学习压力也是非常大的。所以在决定是否跨专业之前，一定要想清楚自身的实际情况，规划好未来几年的学习。并且为以后跨专业做准备。

When applying for a major in a UK university, you must first understand which majors can accept inter-professional applications and which majors do not accept inter-professional applications. You must also work hard on the preparation of the application materials, especially the reason why you need to change your major. This is very important to admissions officers. Remember the most important interprofessional principles.在申请英国大学专业时，要先了解哪些专业可以接受跨专业申请，哪些专业不接受跨专业申请。在申请材料的准备上也要充分的下功夫，尤其是为何要转专业的原因。这对于招生官来说，是非常看重的。要记住最重要的跨专业原则。

The feasibility of applying for graduate students in the United States to transfer majors
1. Transfer of science and engineering to business:
Relatively easy, because science and engineering generally have courses related to mathematics and statistics, and courses related to business are optional.
2. Transferring business to science and engineering:
It is relatively difficult. It is not recommended for students to span too much. If they have to transfer, they can transfer to some marginal subjects, such as mathematical finance, applied mathematics or statistics of some colleges, but it depends on the individual situation of the student, such as course offerings, personal internship Work experience, etc. If you want to switch to biology, chemistry or physics, it is recommended to take a GRE subject test (mathematics, chemistry, biology, physics, biochemistry, computer, psychology, English literature, etc.).
3. Transfer to Pedagogy:
Generally speaking, the transfer of majors will be more successful. It is best to get a domestic teacher qualification certificate and add some educational internship experience.

My undergraduate degree is in science and engineering, and my specific major is mathematics and applied mathematics (data analysis direction). For graduate students, I am more inclined to study business-related disciplines that combine data analysis skills-business analysis. Come to me Said that the computer language required for business analysis is not a problem, but the lack of business knowledge will make us less sensitive to many business phenomena, which is not conducive to our proficiency in this subject. Therefore, for science and engineering students, we try to take a CFA test The first level certificate will be of great help to BA.

My undergraduate degree is in international business, but my graduate degree applied for computer science. I think that when applying for science in business, basically only statistics and computers will be considered, and there are very few others. Therefore, if business studies turn to statistics and computers, it will mainly depend on the proportion of courses. If it’s a computer, logic is the same as converting science to computer. Normally, there should be more than 3 computer courses, and master c, or c++, or java\pathon\ruby and other programming languages. If you are applying for statistics, it mainly depends on the proportion of your courses related to mathematics, computer, statistics, and statistics. If the business is transferred to science, if it is statistics, it can be transferred in most cases. But if you switch to a computer, the course background review is very strict. If the proportion of your courses is not high, you need to show your strong computer preparation in internships, participating in projects, etc., otherwise the hope is very slim. But good schools, other experiences are relatively difficult to judge your level of programming, so some schools will look at this part, but the specific value is still to be discussed. If you have fewer undergraduate computer courses, but you want to transfer to computer, you can learn some computer network courses through coursera and get a certificate. This is somewhat useful.
