And what career path those it lead to?

A BBA is more general – you get some finance, some accounting, some management, some business law, etc. A BS-Finance would be more pointed.

I recommend that you go for the BBA and if you are really interested in finance, go for an MBA afterwords. A BS finance really doesn’t carry much weight these days – you will need an MBA eventually anyway.

If you do go after either of these degrees, by all means take at least one tax course [not the same as accounting] and one “managerial accounting” [aka “budgeting”] course. They were the two most useful courses I have ever taken.

As for career paths, these both lead to careers in business. Again, the BBA can take you almost anywhere. The BS-Finance more or less sends you to the local stockbroker or bank.
