I am currently a management major at my university and debating changing to organizational leadership with a minor in management. I would like to work in the HR department of a company in the future. I have yet to pin a difference in the two majors. Will it matter what degree I hold in order to achieve a management position in a company? Thanks!

I’m graduating in 2 weeks with a MS in Aerospace Engineering. My interests are with aerodynamics and advanced design, but there're limited listed openings in that area.
