Dual-Degree B.A./M.S. Program?

<p>I've been looking at UCSC's dual-degree program, particularly their offering of a dual-degree of Management Economics (Accounting Emphasis) B.A. and a M.S. in Applied Economics and Finances. Supposedly this is a five-year program:</p>

<p><a href="http://econ.ucsc.edu/Grad/dual.shtml%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://econ.ucsc.edu/Grad/dual.shtml&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>At this point, I've <em>considered</em> the possibility of either becoming an auditor, analyst, or perhaps eventually becoming a management consultant of some sort.</p>

<p>Would the dual-degree program be of any help in any of those <em>potential</em> careers that I've mentioned, or is it a waste of an additional year?</p>

<p>Also, would someone with more experience please give me some pros and cons on each of those careers I listed (auditor, analyst, consultant)? I'm still in the very early stages of research, so I'm open to all suggestions.</p>

<p>Thanks in advance.</p>

<p>bump bump bump?</p>

<p>i think it'll be useful if you plan on getting your cpa.
if not, i would just get work experience and pursue an mba later.</p>

<p>I was wondering about this myself.</p>

<p>Does anyone have any more thoughts on it?</p>
