    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently a final year undergrad studying Accounting and Finance (Specialising in finance) at Dublin City University. I have a job offer with a prestigious accounting company in the London office for when I graduate, but I'm not too sure in the long run if auditing is the career for me.

    With this in consideration I plan on doing a MSc in Finance next year, preferably in Dubiln as it means I can avoid having to take the GMAT in final year. I hope that this will give me a better idea of what I want to do in the long term, and even if I decide to take my auditing offer, I will have a professional qualification (ACA) to fall back on, and the MSc will stand to me after, meaning I could change career?

    Does anyone have thoughts on this line of thinking? Am I better off taking my offer in audit and deciding after my training to do the masters in finance?

    I would greatly appreciate any advice anyone has!

    Masters, worse than useless.
    ACA, incredibly dull.

    Shouldn't take you more than four hours to decide what else you might want to do.

    Why do you think a Masters is important?

    Dude, MS has stopped hiring this year, RBS is cutting jobs, the double dip is coming, what else is there to do but a masters?

    There ain't no double dip coming. People constantly mentioning it make it more likely.

    So you'd settle for Dublin just to avoid taking the GMAT in your final year? Doing a Masters can already be a waste of time, with this attitude it definitely won't get you anywhere.

    For your own good take your big4 company offer, you earn some money and get a good qualification that you can use to move to a career you want (after qualifying). You can also move on to somewhere else before qualifying, if you are good..

    Why do you think a Masters degree is worthless, dull, or just a last resort if you can't find anything else?

    The content is worthless in finance. Anything useful, you can learn at work.

    If you want to get into finance bad enough, you'll find out how to get in.
