My name is Andrew and I am from Chicago. I just wanted to introduce myself and let you know why I joined.
I'm 25 and a finance major, I am currently working as a transfer agent analyst at a private investment firm for about one year now after college.
However, I am looking to go back to school for my Master's and would like to go into MIS.
With having a finance background I am wondering will I be able to do the work that is required in the curriculum?
I have had some MIS classes before. Also have any of you heard of people with accounting/finance undergrads doing this before? Were they successful? Is it a desired combination?
I just want to make sure I'm not spending thousands of dollars on nothing. I really want this degree to make me desirable in the job market.
Finance is great but I really want to mainly work in IT. I find it so much more interesting. I hope I can achieve this with this Master's in MIS.
I am happy to be here and am looking forward to the future while I attend these classes and make new friends here.
Please feel free to give any feedback or past experience, it is greatly appreciated!
