Here's an email we received recently. Anyone got any insight or advice?
Good morning. I just finished reading your article. I am actually working towards my master's of social work degree in the Chicagoland area. However, the closer I get to finishing I realize more and more that it is not for me, and I am four courses away from being done.
Fortunately the school I am currently at has an MBA program that I can possibly transfer into. I want to specialize in accounting but that may be a stretch since my undergrad degree was psychology. I never had any problems in math or statistics though. I actually liked it.
Do you have any advice for me a far as preparation for the workload and/or relevant work experience I should try to obtain? It has been a while since I have been learning any concrete material and my last couple of jobs were related to social service.
