I am a senior econ undergrad at non-target graduating in December 2011. I have a goodbut have not taken yet. I have been considering going for a post undergrad masters degree and have a few questions I was hoping to get a little help with.My goals are pretty broad as I have interests in F500,Trading, Consulting, and Banking.I would like to stay in the NE but could stay elsewhere for a while first.
Every industry contact and alum I have spoken to in the business is stressing accounting skills and the marketability of an accounting degree. Given this advice I have been considering the following Accounting Masters:(keeping in mind i am non acc. major)
1) UT Austin - MPA
2) UNC CH - MAcc
3) Vanderbilt - MAcc
4) - MAcc
That said, I don't want to go into tax or audit (advisory/transaction services would be fine).
So I have also been looking into MSF and MSF variant degrees as well. I have been looking at these:
1) UVA - MA Commerce
2) Duke - MMS
3) Villanova -MSF
4) Vanderbilt -MSF
So I am curious to know if I got an MSF would I be closed out of the big 4 advisory and transaction services? And if I got an MAcc would I be limited to accounting positions?
