    I work for larger distribution company as an Inventory Planner, basically I assess our companies software to insure ordering controls are set up properly, data analyst if you will. I spend a TON of time in Excel. My employer told me today they are willing to pay for schooling if I choose to go.

    I'm totally going to try and take advantage of this, BUT I'm wonder if I should go with the business end, or programming end? One of my long term goals is to bring the company up to speed with VBA, so they are very willing to pay for school.

    What would ya'll do? Business side or Programming? Is there a good mix of those two out theres?

    What kind of schooling are we talking about here? Courses at a CC/tech school? College?

    :werd: If you're interested in programming and business, you could do something like MIS. Or, if you find a school that offers it (as mine does), a combined computing science/business degree.
