I am in my early 30s as well; and I really aspire to become one of the most influential entrepreneur. However, my advice for you is to take one step at a time. There are lots of universities and scholars program that offers Science and Engineering courses that will aid your dream of becoming who you want to become in life. However, in my honest opinion, I'd suggest you follow your heart. Go with that course you love so much.

I realize that one of the most easiest way of becoming a successful person in life is to follow your passion. Study a course you have natural passion for. With that, the sky will be your starting point.

Just my one cent.

Which career is low barrier entry for a career change?
I have 3 options that i am currently thinking - IT security, human resource C&B or finance risk management.

Any constructive feedback is highly appreciated.

Thanks!
Option 1: MBA
If cash ainít an issue, start grinding for GRE/GMAT and gun for a MBA either locally or abroad. There are corporate associate programmes catered specifically for postgraduates which may give you a big break into consulting or finance.

(Note: Please matriculate as an on-campus student, never ever do distance learning)

Option 2: Big 4 Career Transition
Keep your eyes peeled on the career portal, the Big 4s do hire experienced professionals without prior knowledge in auditing looking for a transition. Expect a pay cut cuz youíll start from the bottom of the pay grade as an A1 drawing a measly 2,800 SGD salary. Rest assured no one will be staying in audit for the long haul... taking this oath will springboard you to middle-office roles in banks.

Best of luck.

But the thing is, now we are 30+ and if we were to take another degree in engineering, it requires another 3-4years. by then we are already 35-36, and no companies would hire. they would rather hire fresh grads
