For climbing the corporate ladder, do you think a CPA or an MBA is a better decision, or would I need to get both?
After doing a lot of thinking, I think I've come to the conclusion that banking just isn't for me. I really don't think I'm cut out for the lifestyle and I've realized that I really enjoy accounting and management more than bonds/trading and all that finance stuff. Therefore, while I don't want to be a public accountant, I think being an internal auditor or getting into budgeting/managerial/strategic arenas with a corporation is something that I would enjoy and what I want to go for from here on out. Therefore, I'm wondering what would be the better field to pursue, especially since I'm an accounting major. Would I need to get both, would the CPA be a waste of time, or is the MBA worthless if I have a CPA?
thanks, sorry for the long post.
