** Mods, please read the footnote. My ambition is to become a university lecturer of math or chemistry. In the next year, I'm going to read for my undergraduate degree. I'm currently on my vacations. People here who are going to follow engineering or such type of career-oriented degrees tend to spend their vacation on taking courses on management accountancy in the hope that they will benifit from it in salary or rank improvements at where they will work in the future. But, the exam + tuition fee even for the entry level in such a course is high like $ 1000. Will someone who is going to become a lecturer benefit from having professional qualifications in management accountancy ? Even in the period of work-and-study where he will have to earn a living ? $ 1000 is somewhat big for me. I don't want to pile up unwanted (irrelevant) qualifications as it's all money. I'm currently doing self-studies through out the vacation. So, do I need to get those type of professional qualifications ? Thanks in advance ! ** Last time I was banned for hyperlinking to a website of an institute. Sorry, It was not my intention to spam. I wanted to give full details of what I'm saying.
