Critique my degree plan. BSBA Accounting/CIS [TESU]
#1
Question 
Critique my degree plan. Looking to change careers.
At this time I am not thinking about graduate school. Planning accounting & CIS (pretty much CS, without Intro to Programming & one (1) upper level course), to have options and interested in both.
Also do you think I can use "Management" Information Systems, in place of "Accounting" Information Systems?
Thanks for all opinions!

Seems like you have the most difficult computer course in there already (Computer Architecture).

Why not just do a BACS and an Undergraduate Certificate in Accounting?

A BACS isn't for everyone, I am very math adverse, but luckily I got through a few of them... Study.com offers all the math that is required for the BACS if you wanted to know. It's not a cake walk but very doable.
Done: TESU ASNSM Biology, ASBA/BSBA (ACBSP Accredited in 2017)
Business & IT Certs: Cisco, CompTIA, 6Sigma/Lean/Scrum, ITIL, MTA, etc
Coursera Google IT Certs & Udacity Nanodegrees

Working on: TESU BA Biology & Computer Science
Universidad Isabel I: ENEB MBA, Big Data & BI, Digital Marketing & E-Commerce
Deferred: **Deciding on several Masters/PHD programs**

2019 BALS and BSBA Spreadsheet using mainly SL/Study.com (post#28,31)

That's certainly true; however, in this case, OP has Calc I listed as an optional course and s/he is looking to major in Accounting.

Neither of those suggest a fear of math.  Smile

Just assumed having the business core (w/ accounting courses) would be more valuable... Any opinions?

That's going to be more dependent on your desired career path.

What's your targeted career field and what are your career goals?
