This is my first post on here so I apologize if this ends up in the wrong place or a duplicate discussion. For background into my topic, I graduated from college in 2014 from a "no-name" state school as was hired through a staffing agency as a temp-to-hire in back office operations (trade settlement Delaware). After 3 months, I was brought on full time in their analyst training program (operations). After a year in the program, I was brought up to the trading desk as a TA (operations) for 8 months and then was hired on the bank side as a junior trader where I currently work. While to some it may seem odd, I am looking to transition into a Financial Analyst type role. The product I currently trade is being fully automated and the industry being squeezed out and want to get out before the layoffs occur (within the next year or two).
Unfortunately, the school I went to had the economics department (ECON major BA) in the social science school and only required the bare minimum (Macro, Micro, and electives). In addition, I did not take advantage of other finance or accounting courses. Therefore, I never had courses in corporate finance, accounting, forecasting etc. While I do some forecasting at my job, it is very minimal and anyone can do it. As well, I would say I am an above average excel user, however, can definitely strengthen my excel skills as well have no usage with SQL which seems necessary to be a financial analyst.
Down to my question. Does anyone have any recommendations on a good online Masters in Finance/Accounting program and an online advanced excel, SQL program (all online due to other financial commitments)? I believe those two in tangent, with later studying for the CFA, should give me the tools necessary to become a Financial Analyst.
To add, I did not apply for any Financial Analyst Roles yet because I feel I do not meet the qualifications.
