I am currently finishing up my final semester of undergrad at a non-target state university. I expect a major GPA of a 3.4 and the degree will be in history with an assortment of econ and poli sci classes as well. I did not develop a strong interest in finance and the "business world" as a whole until a year or so ago, and by that point it was too late to add a major or even a minor to my degree plan.
Coming from this liberal arts/social science background, I do not have any internship experience, which worries me quite a bit. I worked full-time for the family business for some time, dealing mostly with commercial construction and putting together estimates for job bids. Other than that, I have only volunteer work in an election and part-time retail stuff I do as of now in order to bring money while I'm in school.
I'm mostly looking into MACc programs because of their practicality and the fact that you basically trained to work in public accounting, which although not exciting, is a solid start to a career. I feel like accounting would a more secure choice over, say a MiM or MSF degree, even though I find those options more interesting.
I hope to work in the real estate investment industry in some way, followed by oil/gas. I've looked into a variety of programs, from the Duke MMS to UT-Austin's MPA and MSF but I still really don't know what would be the best choice. I will be visiting a few schools over spring break, hopefully I can get some answers there as well.
