This might be a controversial topic, so let’s try to keep it friendly! People may have different opinions and that’s ok! 🙂
I switched my major around so much during undergrad that I racked up enough credits to sit for the CPA without having to take any grad level courses.
I’m *hopefully* finishing CPA this year–I only have BEC left.
Do you think getting a Masters will help me professionally? Or do you think that being a CPA will give a pretty good competitive edge / pay boost on its own.
(Obviously having a masters is better than not having a masters, but I’m not looking to be a CFO of a fortune 500 and I’m really wondering about the ROI for spending 30k on a masters degree when I’ll already be a CPA. Now…if an employer offers to pay for it, I’d absolutely love to put in the time and effort! I’m just concerned about how good of a financial investment it is for me.)
*I would not be going to a ‘prestigious’ school with a well-known respected program.
