Marie-France’s Answer

I agree with Joanne. This is becoming the norm. Most employers are now "third party payers" helping pay for employees' education. I was able to complete a bachelor in Communications, MBA and a Masters of Information Systems Management while my employer, Verizon, helped with full tuition costs. My recommendation would be to go first for the Engineering degree and complete with the MBA.

Eric’s Answer

In all honestly, there are a lot of schools that have good engineering and accounting programs. The US News and World report has a ranking system (https://www.usnews.com/best-colleges), however it really depends on where you want to live (primary choice) and if they have the programs that you want.

I suggest going into an engineering program that allows you to get a minor in business. Many schools have that type of program. Additionally I would make sure the school has a good track record with career placements as your opportunities for internships and careers after college usually start from the career services department of the college.

Joanne’s Answer

Hi .. go for the computer engineer degree then maybe your future employer will pay for graduate school where you can get a MBA degree.

Or .. if you really like accounting, there are business-concentrated computer degrees.

Accounting is a nice complement to computer science because it brings in a real world perspective of 'what goes in, should come out' - all should be even.
