Hello fellow Fools. I have a MA in Sport and Performance Psychology. I do like but it has no real upward mobility. The job prospects are extremely limited. As such I am considering changing careers. Unfortunately I still have about a new Lexus worth of student loans to pay off.

I wanted to get some information about a couple options I'm thinking about for careers. I recently started learning about stocks and the market and found I really enjoy it. As such I am thinking about going back to school for a degree in accounting, finance, or economics.

My questions are for anyone in these fields. What advice would you give for someone who is 30 and looking to break into these fields. Which degree is the most desirable for employers? What type of jobs can I get with each degree? My ultimate goal is to find a career I can get paid well and advance in while developing professionally. Advice?
