Path/degree recommendation for a 40 yr old man with no degree
#1
Hi there, I’m a newbie here and I’m glad I found you guys. I’m 40 and I’ve been in the financial industry for 15 yrs in relationship management/sales within banking and wealth management. 
For my roles I never really needed a college degree but I have always wanted to completed as a personal fulfillment, potential career progression and to lead my children as example, but I’ve been deferring it and finally I’d like to put the work on it. 
I have completed probably like 16 credits when I attempted college years ago. I’m looking to get your advice on a degree that I can complete fast, super affordable and mostly online. This degree could be within the financial realm or any other degree you may recommend as long as is not too long, fast to complete it, etc. 
I thank you in advance for your support! Rolleyes

Your Location: New York, NY
Your Age: 40
What kind of degree do you want?: I'm open to suggestions
Current Regional Accredited Credits:  I'd have to order a transcript to provide this info, honestly is not much 12-16 credits I don't recall but I wouldn't mind start over.

Current ACE, CLEP, or NCCRS Credits: I'm not even sure I know about these, I'm going to stick that I don't have any credits from these.

Any certifications or military experience? No certifications yet, I have some securities and insurance licenses only (Financials) 

Budget: I would say bet. 5-7k budget.  I'd like to go the cheapest route possible, but will consider spending more for easy and fast.  
Commitments: I have a 13yr old son. I currently work full time but my schedule is very flexible because I work as self-employed and I can work on my studies part time or in the evenings/weekends.
Dedicated time to study: I can study as much as is needed during the night or weekends as long as my schedule is free. I estimate at least 2 hours every day. 
Timeline: Finishing the courses required for the degree as fast as possible would be ideal. 
Tuition assistance/reimbursement: The company I have contract with offers me reimbursements for specific financial designations related to my profession.

Great update, I suggest the Pierpont BOG AAS with an emphasis of your choice (most likely Info Systems), ladder that up to the UMPI BAS or BLS with a minor of your choice such as PM, MIS or Management, you can add the 3-4 classes that can be re-used for the UMPI MAOL later. Here's a sticky thread and it'll have all the links: https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...one-it-yet
