Hi folks! Been a long time since I last posted here. I am looking for advice and thought you people might have some insight to help me. Note that this inquiry does not pertain to a web-based program but rather a traditional B&M program. I hope this doesn't offend anyone here. My Opportunity: I was just accepted into the Master of Science in Accounting program at Stockholm University in Stockholm, Sweden. It is a two-year program but it has a one-year option that I plan to select. You can read about it if you wish here--> Accounting - Stockholm Business School My Situation I live in Stockholm, so my decision is not about moving overseas or anything. The program is tuition free; my only costs would be lost wages from giving up my full-time job. I am a teacher; I have spent the past seven years teaching business administration, entrepreneurship, economics, and leadership courses to 17-19-year-old high-school students who go on to elite business schools in Europe (LSE, Imperial, Cambridge, Oxford, UCL, etc). Before teaching, I was a network administrator for a few years. Before my IT work, I was a land surveyor, and before that I managed a small family business. Aside from what is mentioned above, I have no real business experience. I certainly have no accounting experience. I want to transition out of teaching and into a more business-oriented field. Accounting attracts me because I have always been interested in the numbers side of business. Entrepreneurship is my real passion, and I envision myself becoming a consultant for startups and helping them with their budgeting and accounting. I have a BS in management from the Stockholm University Business School already. It taught me loads, but I feel accounting is a hard skill that is in greater demand than leadership skills, which are much more abstract. And now, the kicker... I am 49 years old and will be 50 by the time I finish the one-year program. So my question to you all is this: Is it worth it? Would I be wasting my time? Will nobody be interested in me at that point, despite those academic credentials? Is my lack of experience a deal-breaker? I don't expect you to understand the Swedish job market, but I know that ageism is a real problem here. Still, I see plenty of people changing careers at 50 over here, but usually they are leaving jobs and starting their own businesses in areas where they have years of experience.
