This is probably a bit offtopic for this message board, however, I do not frequent or know of any other forums to discuss my issue so i chose this board. basically, i graduated with a BS in business and am considering the accounting field. it is not something difficult for me since i like numbers and like to analyze. what im looking to do is get a job in the accounting field ( i already found a positions at a firm that does accounting, tax, bookkeeping, irs, etc. services) and then do one of the following to further my education in the field: 1) get an AA in accounting and further down the road get an MBA in accounting/finance 2) go back to my univ. to get a bs in accounting and much further down the road get an MBA in accounting/finance 3) strictly get an MBA in accounting/finance 4) do nothing since i will learn most of the work through experience Also, I am not considering the MS in accounting since i would have far less coursework to fulfill with a BS in accounting. This applies to the MB Taxation as well. No CPA license consideration either since i am looking to stay within a business environment and move up within. So accounting professionals, which do you think is the way to go for my current situation? background: i am in my very early 20s, no payments of any kind, but want to get working with possibilities of advancement in the future. serious answers please, by qualified individuals. thanks!
