I just completed my masters in accountancy this may with a 3.7 GPA, and I earned an honors degree in undergrad with a 3.8 GPA. When I was an undergrad, I majored in accounting and double minored in marketing & economics. In September this year, I will be pursuing another master degree in public administration & international development for two years.
As far as professional experiences, I have always tried to work as much as possible when I was in school (have a total of 2 years of experiences) with finance internships at two of the Big-four accounting firms and three of the Fortune 100 companies.
Eventually I want to go work for one of the consulting firms or an international finance organization like the IMF/the World Bank.
However, I am scared that my 3.7 GPA in masters of accountancy will hinder my chances of getting into those organizations. Should I be concerned?? My grad GPA did decrease from undergrad, what is the possible impact? Will any of you provide more insight on what is valued more when it comes to getting a competitive job?
Thank you for the answers!!
