So my ultimate goal is to become a financial analyst and I hear that accounting is a good way to enter. it's my own fault I only took a couple of accounting courses in undergrad, and I don't have a lot of accounting to show on my resume when applying for jobs.

I was thinking about getting an associate's in accounting and working bookkeeper, ap/ar roles. from there, since you need a bachelor's degree to become a staff accountant, would a bachelor's in econ (but not a lot of upper division accounting courses) along with accounting assistant/bookkeeper experience make me eligible for becoming a staff accountant?

A more direct path would be to earn a bachelor 's degree in accounting.

I would also suggest for go for Bachelor's in Commerce in spite it would be difficult and costly. An investment in Knowledge pays the highest dividend. If any distance course is available it can be pursued in line with commerce.
