So the consensus thus far is the name of the university doesn’t carry as much weight as the experience itself?
For the record Towson/UB is also ranked pretty high on that link I added to the OP, which is likely where I’d go (I know grain of salt).
What about multiple degrees from the same university vs. multiple universities? I’ve always been concerned employers would see I’ve gone repeatedly to the same school and think I’m unwilling to branch out of my comfort zone, is that valid concern?
if you are going to supplement your skills with education, I wouldn’t go for a “degree”, especially in business. You already have an accounting degree. I always tell this to everyone…you can do anything in business with an accounting degree, you just need to get the experience. You could start an entry level position in marketing, or management, or whatever with an accounting degree; however, you can’t start an entry level accounting job with any other degree, except maybe Finance. See how that works? You mad a good choice already!
Instead, supplement your business experience with College Courses that results in skills. For instance, focus on finance classes, technology classes, SQL, law, etc. Learn all those little tips and tricks that will make your current job more efficient, effective, and indispensable. In this way, no one will care that you got it all from the same university. And, you get say on your resume “developed new budgeting tools by programming an SQL report” or whatever.
Now if you want to go back to school and get your Mathematics, physics, or engineering degree, that’s a whole other story.
