I am 28 years old and have about 4 years experience as an accountant. I am currently enrolled at a local university taking two intro computer science courses. I am curious as to what opportunities might be available given my accounting background.
According to my academic advisor I will be eligible to enroll in their M.S. of Computer Science program after completing eight core c.s. classes (btw this is a reputable state school in my city).
I have not decided how far I want to take the computer science degree/career. I figure the spectrum is anything from becoming a business analyst to a software engineer.
I guess my plan to date is to continue with taking the C.S. courses and try to make the switch to a business analyst. Then continue with classes if I choose to do so.
Does this sound reasonable? I would like to hear your thoughts on what educational requirements and alternatives are out there.
