What to do after CPA? - Page 2

    Hello hello! I am looking for some advice, but first I’ll give a little background…I have been working in accounting for 5 years. First 4 in a small CPA firm doing everything from audit to tax to payroll, 1 year in a midsize firm as tax staff, and now I am at a family office as a tax and advisory senior. I have my MBA and finally passed the CPA last year.

    Now that I’ve been done for awhile, I’m starting to feel that itch to study or go back to school, but I’m not really sure what I should do. My husband suggested maybe the CMA exam, and I think that would be a good option. It won’t help me in my current job, but could potentially be useful in the future. Are there any other designations I should look at? I would appreciate any and all advice!

    Hi Jennifer,
    Here a link with some credentials that are offered in conjunction to those already having a CPA license:
    I think ABV & PFS tend to be the most useful if you're working in public accounting (and not specialty). Whatever you do, just make sure to check out if you can meet the experience requirements for what you pursue. I've been back and forth on trying to take the CFA exams, but ultimately have held off since I couldn't meet the experience requirements with my position. Good luck with whatever you decide.
