MBA + CPA combo: Worth it?
I have a BA in Accounting and currently work as a Sr. FP&A Analyst at a large automotive firm in Detroit. I was thinking about doing a PT MBA at uMich to advance my education while also moving me up to management. It will be fully paid for by my employer and is the 6th best program in the country, so it's pretty much a no brainer decision.
After I complete the MBA, I will have enough credits to sit for the CPA license. But will having the CPA/MBA combo be worth anything in the corporate finance field? I'm curious to know where (or in what kind of jobs) it will give me a leg up.
There's also the CMA certificate, which seems to be just as respected as the CPA and is also more applicable to the CF field in general. Would that be a better option?
Any advice? In what jobs would I have a leg up?
