AP Stats or AP Calc AB?

If I plan on going to a Marketing/Communications/Economics field, should I take AP Stats or AP Calc AB (and NOT BC), we can only take 1 math course a year, so my draft schedule for math would be ~

9th grade - Math 2 Honors (basically Algebra 2 Honors)

10th grade - Math 3 Honors (Algebra 3 Honors)

11th grade - Math 4 Honors (Algebra 4 Honors) or Pre-Calculus Honors depending on if I decide to take AP Stats or AP Calc AB

12th grade - AP Stats OR AP Calc AB

Should I take AP Stats or AP Calc AB based on the field I want to go in? Or should I take AP Calc AB and self-study AP Stats? Thank you!

Also, did you take AP Stats or AP Calc AB?

AP Stats for sure.

For Economics, Stats is the way to go. It looks more into real-world applications, which seems to fit your major pretty well. Calc AB has its uses, but I would take Stats in this situation.
