I was wondering if anyone could comment on whether or not an executive/PT MBA could help if I wanted to move from accounting to traditional(think FP&A, not IB/ ). I currently work at the Big 4 in audit, but I'm pretty sure that I don't want to just do financial reporting/controls for the entirety of my career and want to move into a more decision-making/decision-support role with the finance side.
Ideally, I want to avoid a FT MBA because it's expensive and I don't know how much value it would give knowledge-wise since I've already had the Ps of marketing hammered into my brain in undergrad. Therefore, I was wondering if an executive MBA or whatever they're called could be a good middle-ground for me. Accounting and Finance ARE related, and even though PTs aren't usually the best idea for people looking to change careers, I'm wondering if it's that hard of a sell to request this type of switch and if the MBA can lend credence to this move. After all, it's not like I'm trying to make a jump from accounting to marketing or/IB.
Does anyone have experience/advice regarding this?
