Which degree is the most 'fun'?

Hi Monkeys!

I'm in front of my decision to choose a degree. I'm an international student and I probably will study in the UK, at a target school, so that's not the problem.I read here, that the degree doesn't actually matter as much as the school does. So I'd like to have a bit more insight about what Finance, Economics and Accounting degree looks like. And what would you recommend if I later want to break into I-Banking.

Stay at small, private university of transfer?

Background info:
Just started here at this private university if FL. It's small so the small classes are a definite plus. Good professors, etc. Business program is fairly good too. Also, I'm a double major in accounting and finance. I'm really considering financial analyzing or maybe becoming a CPA, haven't yet decided which route.

Desperately seeking resume critique - Corporate Finance/Business Analyst

I graduated college in May 2013 and was lucky enough to grab a job as a Mortgage Analyst at a Credit Union. I am applying for entry level Business Analyst jobs at any company I can find on Indeed, Craigslist, or linkedin. I am shooting for larger corporations as I have experience working in large company HQ's. I would really appreciate if you could tell me what you like best about my resume and what can I improve on. Also, if any bullets can be improved or re-written better.

Top Master of Finance (MSc) schools?

I'm having difficulties finding a good ranking list of the top programs for masters in finance. USNews has their list cut off super short unless you subscribe. Would anyone have a good top list?

I'm getting a little worried that I might not be able to land a good job after I graduate. Junior financial economics major with a 3.5 and decent internships but I go to a non target, although respectable school. Would a one year MSc Finance be a good idea? Where would somewhere like Vanderbilt land you?

BB Finance to Top Bschool

Read some articles about how M7 and the like prefer candidates with top jobs in finance or either people in other professions (engineering,tech).

Does the finance division at MS/GS qualify you in terms of work experience for Booth/Columiba/Kellogg? Or are they looking for only for S/T,IBD,ER? This is considering a GPA/GMAT that would be inline with the averages at these schools

Future job

I am a student attending Baruch College in NYC and am a little confused on choosing between the two below. I would appreciate any insight from those who are experienced or know of those who are experienced to help me visualize the reality and possibilities of each. How do they compare? I realize that accounting is in high demand in the following years and will most likely continue to be because everyone needs to spend some time with uncle Sam. However, I would appreciate to read upon your thoughts. Also what would the salary be with a masters degree in either? Also it's go hard or go home, I am terrible at math but I will dedicate 5-8hours of studying a day if it means to get into Columbia to pursue a masters finance.

Finance student advice

Hello, I am currently a third year finance student at SUNY New Paltz and I have questions about my prospects. Since I go to such an irrelevant school, I am having second thoughts about my future. I used to study accounting but I enjoy finance much more and I am getting much better grades in these classes. My main concern is that I will not be marketable after graduation trying to find work not just on Wall Street, but in any financial capacity. I am curious as to what other possibilities are out there for a finance major from a small school. Thank you!

Deferred Tax Asset question

Received this question during an interview with a BB: How do depreciable and amortizable assets & foreign tax credits give rise to deferred tax assets?

I have some understanding regarding foreign tax credits (but not sure if my intuition is correct). From my understanding, foreign tax credits give rise to a deferred tax asset when you have paid or accrued the tax on foreign income. Thus, you can use this tax credit to reduce your U.S. tax liability (and avoid double taxation).
