RE: What's a good Master to get next?
My CELTA was the best return on investment. It took a month and I've earnt about a 1300% return on the investment in the course. Sure, I don't earn a huge amount as a TEFL teacher, but then I have no debts. Also I live rent free.

I did look at do a Masters in entrepreneurship but just feel that now I'm in my 40's I should be teaching the class, not studying in it.

I did a doctorate in my 20's. It was a lot of fun and if I didn't already do one I'd seriously consider it.

Stuff I've seen on my travels...

RE: What's a good Master to get next?
Others have beat me to it, but I’d say something like statistics or applied mathematics.

Here in the US, Sociology is not a high paying masters. Since you sound like you have a quantitative orientation, a math focused degree would be a good option. Your masters in Sociology, in conjunction with a math oriented degree, might be what makes your CV look interesting in the end - a numbers guy who also has dabbled in the softer aspects of social behavior.

I’m going on the assumption that you have the time and money for another degree and, as you mentioned, you actually like school. There is some value to actually getting out there and working. See what you really like doing in the real world. In some cases, a specialized degree is a requirement for entry in a particular field. For example, a humanities degree won’t get you a job as an actuary or a software engineer. Your interests sound varied enough that work experience might be what you need.

Just my rough thoughts.

Good luck.

Maybe it's because I live in an other country that isn't USA, but what perspectives of job and salary usually gets a mathematician there? Because where I live the mathematician isn't appreciated enough and net salaries are just littler higher than average but nothing exceptional in most cases.
Asking because I am finishing the math studies.

Math major in US will probably make you employable in insurance or financial company.

RE: What's a good Master to get next?
Which MBA program would have the hottest girls?
Would it be good to just attend a mediocre MBA program if the university still has hot girls?
Like, ASU or UCLA would have hot undergrads/grad students?
How about Miami, FSU, or UFlorida?
I suppose any SEC school would have hot college girls as well.

RE: What's a good Master to get next?
With it in mind that this thread is more than 3 years old so the advice is useless for the OP:

My view is that an accountancy qualification is the single most useful advanced schooling the generalist individual can obtain for achieving stand out success. It creates an image of safety and competence that marks you out for management, it does actually enable you to manage complex projects and run businesses, and it also lets you understand other businesses that you may be competing against, or importantly may wish to invest in.

Any great investor is a solid accountant. Any good businessman should be very comfortable with the forensic details of his company's balance sheet, and know what it really means.

Some kind of basic accountancy qualification (not necessarily full chartered accountant), of the kind you can get through night school etc, is probably the single best educational investment anyone under 30 can make in themselves in my view.

RE: What's a good Master to get next?
Thanks for people still giving advice after I started this thread 3 years ago.

Long story short I did finish my rather worthless degree, and manage to land a very comfortable job here in Paris. It pays the bill and requires almost zero effort, and the people I work with are pretty cool. I dont even have to show up at work these days. Pretty sweet outcome but TBH it has much more to do with me having a very high level of English than any other quality on my CV.

I have quite a lot of free time at work now so I'm doing a complete assessment of my situation. I could just keep coasting through this job with a meager pay but requires zero effort, and use the free time to try starting a business. O try to learn something useful and try to get a better paying job (which will still be a corporate office slave job)

I'm not going the MBA route, it's a trap. You spend lots of $ and a couple years to get a degree that basically be a better corporate slave. No thanks.

H1N1 is dead on, accounting is some hard skill that can be useful in almost every corner and also needed for the entrepreneur. I should look into something like that.

Another choice is to go into Big Data or SEO. It's very technical but with a bit of effort I think I can wing it.

Or go the obvious route of learning how to do real estate and build up maximum capital and cash flow. Especially in France loan interest rate is fixed.

Will keep you posted.

I heard it was hard for young people to get jobs in Paris, so you should probably stick to your job if it pays well. I wouldn't do some risky thing like starting a blog for zero money.
What industry are you working in that requires zero effort?
I just heard that France has weird rules for hiring that hurts youth employment, but its almost impossible to be fired once you get the job.
How is the tech industry in paris?
I've seen some job postings but there doesn't seem very many tech
startups besides Daily Motion.
I guess it depends on your age and what type of future career you want, or if you need to support children/wife.
Are you going to stay in Paris for the future, or do you want to move to another country?

What about data science/machine learning?

In terms of courses/qualifications, this one from Harvard business school looks pretty good. And for that money I suspect you can't really go wrong. It'll be US accounting, but almost all the principles will be the same.

RE: What's a good Master to get next?
I find it very surprising that no one has mentioned this, especially since this forum is very in tuned politically, but Political Science is a good Master's degree to have.

I think its one of the better Liberal Arts majors. I'm doing it now and I have had success in it because it gets me in the door to doing congressional internships and that sort of thing.

As an undergrad join lots of clubs and political organizations. If you are a conservative join your school's Republican team, and organizations in your town, NRA, MAGA club, all that stuff. If you are a Democrat, join Black Lives Matter, La Raza, LULAC, "Me 2" movement and all of that shit, Women's Marches haha. All of that helps when it comes time to do congressional internships.

When you are a Senior in college try to intern in a congressional office in DC, preferably a congressman or woman from your state and district. It shouldn't be too hard if you join all those organizations and did well in your studies. If you do well for your congress person they can recommend you to intern for a Senator in your state.

When you go ahead and do a master's degree in Political Science try to do an internship in DC with your senator. Also if you want to be very up there, try to intern at the white house with Trump. I knew a couple of guys who have done that. Only problem with that is that you have to be pretty much a Republican to get in. Obama was a little more lax with his white house interns, he had more of a diverse group of Democrats and Republicans. You aren't going to do yourself any favors if you apply at the Trump White House with BLM, Me 2, and La Raza in your resume. Just something to keep in mind.

If you don't want to go the Capitol Hill route, you can intern at the Department of State or Defense, the CIA, FBI and other government agencies. Work at an Embassy overseas for fellow rooshers.

Having these internships makes you very valuable for employers in any sector. Political Science majors have gotten jobs in business, government, the private sector, pretty much anywhere. I knew a guy who majored in PS who is a lobbyist working for an insurance company, dude makes 100k. I knew another guy who became a fundraising consultant and makes around 80k. You can work for think tanks, non-profit organizations, and pretty much anywhere really.

I'm currently a Master's in PS and I love it.


The only drawback to this is that almost all the internships are unpaid, which I think is a joke that politicians do not pay their interns. You are basically going to work for free for about 5 months in expensive as hell Washington DC to be the bitch boy of the staffers. You need to pay rent, bills, eat for the duration of your stay all while working full time and for free. I find it funny how Democratic politicians say things like "Living Wage", "Fight for $15", if you as a politician are for those things but don't pay your interns, then that's fucking pathetic. At least pay them fucking minimum wage! Don't make them work for fucking free like its the 1800s or something. Shit give me 8 bucks an hour at least. Right wing organizations and Republican politicians don't get a pass from this either. What's the conservative motto? "Pick yourself up by your own boot straps, don't be dependent on the government," THEN PAY YOUR FUCKING INTERNS! How does it make any sense that you want people to be independent but at the same time you don't want to pay them. A Mcdonald's burger flipper is worth more than an intern working for congress in DC, pathetic! The only congressman and senators that I know that pay their interns are

Bernie Sanders-D- Vermont
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez-D- New York
Ro Khana-D- California

If you live in either of these 3 states and thinking of doing DC internships those are the 3 to go. For the rest of us we are pretty much screwed and have to do our internships for free like its god damn slavery or some shit. I know AOC just recently started paying her interns $15 bucks an hour, so there is that. This is another topic for another day though.


All in all, I highly recommend a Master's in Political Science. A Bachelor's in political science as well. If you love politics as much as I do its a good place to start.

RE: What's a good Master to get next?
Think about it a different way - you prefer to be an individual contributor versus a team player (No Bosses) and you mentioned in your OP you have an interest in markets and needed to make a better income [to live an advanced red-pill] lifestyle.

So where are the great money centers and what drives them?

NYC, London, Frankfurt, Paris, HK, Tokyo, and Commerce Drives them meaning the Markets.

AI and Tech are in the process of disrupting everything and every developer's team I know of in the USA use offshore devs in low-cost alternative locations Romania, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Belarus, Poland, Hungary even Brazil, Argentina, India and the Philipines.

So anyone studying tech in the west will likely become a program manager or lead architect of coders offshore with many of the coding jobs replaced by AI. What will not be replaced by AI too soon is the skillsets to analyze these Technologies, Companies and Industries for future investment returns.

I have a friend who runs a $200M-USD Trading Book for a Major Global Financial Services firm. Most of the guys on his team are in their late 20s to 30s have Masters Degrees in Finance. They make millions every year up markets or down.

These are the folks who become the next Hedge Fund Managers or so-called Mega Investors like Warren Buffet.

Rather than get another masters degree since you have your sociology undergrad and a masters... you can learn a tremendous amount from a few key books and Vlog Sites... my favorite new FinTech Vlog site is Hyperwave on YT and their associated websites:

Hyperwave RT Channel I have watched most of their short 1 hour videos and they are currently writing a book ...
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLJxbdX...Sy79TMVQSw

Their HV Website:
Lucid Investment Strategies, LLC
https://lucidinvestmentstrategies.com

Books the Institutional Money Managers, Investors and Traders refer to:
Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets: A Comprehensive Guide to Trading Methods and Applications (New York Institute of Finance) by John J. Murphy | Jan 1, 1999 Hardcopy on Amazon

Steidlmayer on Markets: Trading with Market Profile, 2nd Edition 2nd Edition
by J. Peter Steidlmayer (Author), Steven B. Hawkins (Author)
Steidlmayer developed the concept of Market Profile used by advanced institutional Traders.

Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns Hardcover – May 2, 2005
by Thomas N. Bulkowski (Author)

You would be surprised how much Japanese Candlestick Patterns are useful to Institutional Traders...

No matter how much coders use so-called Artificial intelligence to automate tasks AI that can replace human analysis and deduction is still just so much science fiction...

The Principles of Money and Wealth Management and Trading Profits Capture will be with us for centuries to come no matter the type of Money, Country, currency Forex or Crypto the future brings. Most importantly when you master the concepts of the truly great Authors and Market Masters you begin to accumulate the kind of FU money and knowledge where you create your own job and role and never answer to a boss but in fact the Managers are there to help enable your continued success basically they show you respect or watch you walk to new opps.
