What should I study to become a good investor?

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

There are a few times in our lives when we have to make big decisions and they could be easier for some than others but I don't think they are easy, by any measure.

AK talks to "himself" here.

Hi AK,

I'm AK too! I would like your advice for my course of studies.

I'm interested in investing. However should I take a degree in Business (in NBS ) to learn investing?

And would an engineering degree put me at a disadvantage due to not being able to learn accounting and economics?

I ask my father and friends and they all gave very different answer. I hope you can help me! Thank you.

P.S. I really enjoy reading your blog and find that many of your habits are worth following. Whenever I get home I always look foward to reading your posts be it where you eat and how much you save. 





Hi AK,

Alamak! You are asking an Arts grad whether you should study business or engineering? I have no clue! OK, end of reply. LOL.

I will say to go with your heart. Do what you want to do. I decided to do what I wanted to do too when trying to decide which degree to go for. If I had been a bit more practical in my choice, I would probably be making more money now but would I be happier? I don't know, really.

I did a part time diploma in business later. It was a bit demanding because the twice weekly classes were from 7pm to 10pm and the course went on for almost 2 years. It does show that if we want to study business or accounting later on, we can always do so as a mature student.

Enjoy your studies and whatever you do, as long as your are prudent in your personal finances and if you invest to supplement your earned income, in my eyes, you are on the right track. :)

Best wishes,
AK
