I'm going to be starting in Big 4 audit later this year, and already know that hardcore accounting, let alone auditing, is not the end game for me. I simply want the accounting bootcamp and name on my resume. Instead, I want to move into corporate FP&A, with plans to work up to Director/VP level, maybe even CFO if i'm lucky.
My plan as of now is to do about 3-5 years of Big 4, study hard like a mofo for the GMAT, and apply to a decent b-school. I took the GMAT before for my Macc, and got a 680, so I figure I can reasonably get that same score, if not higher. I'm primarily looking at top 15-30 schools (think Emory, Indiana, Notre Dame).
I've read a lot about FLDP's at F500's, but mostly for those straight out of undergrad. Any opinions the relevance of these programs post MBA, particularly in relation to my goals? Any advice is much appreciated.
