Baruch college - MS Finance & Big 4 recruiting

I've seen enough cynicism on the program and the school as a whole to lose faith. However, being an international student I don't have many options. I haven't had the time to prepare for the GMAT yet but I'm hoping to get it done in a few months. I'm just setting a plan B, because of some stupid conscription laws I have to maneuver.

My plan is as follows: get into the program; land a Big 4 Audit role (TAS don't offer international student sponsorship, to my knowledge) and remain there for, say, two years; get the CPA and CFA done (I'm done with CFA level 1); and then move into Equity Research. From there I could probably do an MBA after a few years.

How reasonable do you think this plan is? Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

Can't tell if you're joking...but I hope not lol

As I said, this is basically a worst case scenario. I've checked LinkedIn and seen many who have done the same, so it's not fully contrived 💀
