I studied Product Design at Central Saint Martins- London Institute (B.A) and prior to that did a 3 year degree (foundation course+BTS) in ceramic design in Paris at another major Art School.
I have 6 years in retail planning/analyst on my resume for a US home goods company as well as experience with e-commerce/ marketing.
I am looking to change path and would like to work for CMS as a health insurance specialist, specializing on analyzing data and policies.While I am mostly looking to do this change through jobs, I am also looking into whether a health care administration degree will be absolutely necessary.
If so, would any of my education transfer to the US system? The European system for arts school is so different I have no idea how a possible transfer of credit could work at all regardless of the fact it so probably not much relevant
Also looking into add-on training about health care specific policies.
If you have suggestion let me know.
