What starting out would be best in finance real estate analyst planner or volunteer work to network and build my skills while in school. Does anyone mentor people in this situation or can shed light on the subject
It may still be a ways out in the future, but for your interest in entrepreneurship, internships likely will be as useful as your degree, if not more so.
As you plan your education, you want want to keep that on your radar as well.
Best of Luck!
It depends on what the small business is. Need more info please.
An economics major will teach you how to think. (Yes, I am an economist, so I'm biased. :)) Whatever your major, you'd benefit from two semesters of accounting (basic financial and then management/cost).
I would also recommend an MBA. Check with the local colleges and see if there are any MBA programs. (They generally only require a relevant BA/BS degree, probably your psych degree meets the qualifications).
I highly recommend a course in macro economics, and especially for you, a course in entrepreneurship. Macro economics teaches you what the effects of event around the world have on small and large businesses alike. Macro economics really opens your eyes.
Entrepreneurship teaches you how to start and operate a small business, with many principles also applying to large businesses. I found the previous two MBA courses the most interesting and relevant. Also, a course in finance and one in accounting should round out your interests in business and real estate. Even if you do not pursue an MBA, you could take undergrad equivalents of these courses and get a lot out of them.
Best of luck, and thanks for your service Semaj.
You could click on the Community tab of the ACP webpage,
then, under the advisors tab, select Real Estate from the "refine by" pull down box.
Look through the advisors, and message some of them.
Alternately (my advice):
The best degree might be the one you have rather than the others you don't have.
Might be good enough already for Real Estate, there might be licensing requirements.
Pursuing Business an MBA would help, added to your undergrad degree.
A degree in Finance and/or Accounting with a CPA would be good for finance.
Best to do some job searches, then examine preferred requirements for listed openings.
