Intoductory finance and taxation are all graduate level subjects... taught in a hons. graduate degree. Nothing to do with masters. yes they will promote it, cause they are teaching those courses and its their uni.. However in field, most of the HR people would side line ur CV not knowing what the heck is this associate degree pogram.
After I.com i will suggest a simple B.com, get it done asap, get it done from a cheap place dont waste much money on it... the real thing is the professional degree of a CA or an ACCA... get that.If u can't get that than get enrolled in a good hons. program like BBa hons. from a top uni. and then go for ur MBA.
