I'm a recent liberal arts grad and I've developed an interest in finance careers. I had no finance internships so it's going to be hard finding finance or finance related jobs. I did take some business courses in undergrad and found them interesting.
I've decided to get an MBA in the future to break into finance. Due to my lackluster experience, I don't think I can get into a top MBA program so I'm thinking about networking to get finance or finance related work experience, doing an MSF, or a second degree in CS then get an MBA after I work for a few years. My parent's don't want to fund my MSF aspirations but they will fully fund the CS degree and plus I'll be living with them so I'll get free food and housing. I'll also get a very small stipend for gas, food, credit card bills, etc.
The CS degree might take me 3 years while the MSF degree is 1 to 1.5 years and I'll have to take out a 50k-100k loan for the MSF degree. I won't be working so I might lose 1.5 to 2 years of income if I do CS. The CS degree is more broad though. I can get tech and finance jobs while the finance degree can only get me finance jobs.
What do you think?
