Question

Does anyone think me getting a CPA/Masters in Finance to become a Business Analyst a good idea?

Analyst and research seem to be jobs suitable for an introvert.

I prefer to not have consistent interaction with people but can communicate well regularly.

I think this combination of Business/Accounting/Finance and I.T. touch on all the careers I have soon that are good for introverts.

Does anyone agree?
