I am in my early thirties attending SDSU for one year. When I transferred I was positive I wanted to be an accounting major. However, at the same time I started working about 60 hour weeks. Needless to say, I did not pass my first six unit accounting course (had a D which is basically the worse grade I ever had in college). The problem is that I am married and in my thirties and want to move on with my life (I want to have kids,etc...).
I am contemplating changing my major to management which I heard is much easier than accounting. It takes a lot of humility and some embarrassment to make such a drastic change. Should I be ashamed of moving from accounting to management?
What can I do with management anyway? The research I have done so far does not show me the best outlook.
I work less now, about 45 hours per week. I am a demand analyst in a wireless company in San Diego (I do master scheduling and budget preparation).
Management would take me 2 years max working 40 hours per week (including summer school).
Accounting would take me 3 years working 40 hours per week (including summer school).
This is a BIG life decision for me. If I could go back to when I was 19 and do it all over again, I would.
Anyway, any advise on whether to stay in accounting vs. changing to management would be appreciated. Also, what can one do with management? Being in the accounting major, I see numerous job opportunities, I am not sure about management?
