Hey all. New here. I am trying to set my path for my next educational pursuit. I have two undergrad degrees in business - Finance and Accounting, a Lean Six Sigma Green belt, and a couple of years of experience in private accounting. I'd like to get two Masters degree if I could. I will be using what I have left of the GI bill to help pay for it. I think I have 10 months of chapter 1607 at 890/mo and then 12 months of post 9/11 at 80%. I can't afford to try and do something like the UNC MBA and bury myself in debt. I'm not 100% sure that the GI Bill is going to pay me for a second program added concurrently to the first. I understand that towards the end I will be paying out of pocket, but that is okay. I'm studying for my Certified Management Accountant certification right now. I plan on getting that and a CPA, once I get 150 hours and 2 more advanced level accounting courses. I don't mind doing accounting. Mainly, since it is the "language of business," I just want to demonstrate a complete mastery of it and open myself up to move up financial analysis, banking, or whatever else is financial related. I don't want to work in public accounting, but I would be happy as a controller for a manufacturing firm. Here are some things I've found online that have struck my interest: Georigia Tech Operations Research: I'd need some additional math foundation. I like their financial quant type electives. I'm not sure I could even be accepted. Great name recognition. Georgia Southern Master of Accountancy: It's AACSB, cheap, and only 30 hours. I've heard that a MAcc is pointless if one has a BBA Accounting. Good name recognition in my area. Georgia Southern Master of Science Applied Economics: AACSB, cheap, 30 hours, and I could get it in 21 if I did the GSU MAcc by taking MAcc electives in MSAE. I like the concept of an AE degree, but I'm not entirely sure employers do. North Dakota State Master of Science Applied Economics: AACSB, about same price as AACSB. Will require a thesis or internship. I hear it is better than Southern's, but I won't have the name recognition here with it. New England College of Business and Finance, MS Finance: I think I could get a military discount and and get this one for about 16k. RA. It is, however, the only reasonable MSF I could find. I'm worried there would be no recognition of it in my area. I also HATE the idea that it is a private institution with no brick and mortar location. This spells a little trouble, but I am lured by it being one of the cheapest MSFs out there. MBAs possibilities: Wayne State: It's SUPER cheap, but no name recognition in my area. Amberton: Same as above. University of Louisiana Monroe: Inexpensive, AACSB, and only 30 hours. It "sounds" cheap though. Eastern New Mexico State: ONLY $5708 if I only took two classes a semester. ABCSP. A clear cut sign that I went to school online to a school no one in my area has ever heard of. Mississippi State University: AACSB, and I could get this degree for under 12k with a military/SEC state residency status discount. This has the best name recognition in my area of any MBA on my list. ------------------------------------ Do you guys see any value to the MSAE for what I want to do? Is the MAcc worth taking? Would anyone touch the New England College of Biz and Finance and their MSF? Are there any cheap, public, B&M, MSF's online out there? What are the thoughts on my MBA choices? I know there is a lot of info there, but I appreciate any guidance you can provide. Thanks!
