    I’ve worked nearly my entire career in finance, working with consumers to help them understand simple to complex financial concepts. I’ve also written financial articles for several magazines. But, since I did not work for a brokerage, I do not know how to get accredited as a certified financial planner.

    I’m currently going for my associates degree in business management with an emphasis in administration, however I feel that this degree choice is limiting. I graduate in September and I’m thinking about continuing on to get a bachelors degree in business finance. I’m 21 and I don’t know EXACTLY what I want to do but I feel I would enjoy a career in finance (not accounting exactly), what kind of careers would be an option for me with a bachelors degree in business finance?
