Do MS Accounting Rankings Matter [#permalink] New post 02 May 2011, 16:17
Hello All,

Like MBA, do the school rankings matter for MS in Accounting?

Moreover, can you apply for MBA while enrolled in MS program at another school?
If I start my MS in September 2011, can I start applications for MBA this fall?
Any expert advice...????
Thanks, Eva

Accounting, like law or medicine, requires regulated certification and licensing, it does not carry quite the same onus on the recruiters that the b-schools do. having said that, if you are shooting for the big 4, you'd better do some informational interviews with these firms to get their opinion on the schools they like to see graduates coming from or where they might prefer to recruit. You have the unique opportunity here to essentially reverse engineer your career. Knowing where you want to end up, work backwards to where you are now and see if you can choose the ideal path. You may be surprised at the willingness you will encounter from these firms when you approach them as a pending graduate student.

As for applying to an MBA program, yes you can certainly do that as an MS student in accounting, but remember that b-schools generally value work experience above all, so you might need to answer why you chose to go straight to b-school instead of working as an accountant and leveraging that degree first.

Thank You so much, I am in need of good advice.

Can you please compare MS Accounting:Daniels Business School @ University of Denver Versus:
MS Accounting: Olin School of Business @ Washington University St. Luis.

Which one should I choose?

I am accepted to Denver's joint degree MBA/MS Accounting program (with scholarship) but I am thinking of just doing MS Accounting for now and later apply to a better ranked MBA program. Any thoughts?

I live in a small town and have no connections to business world. This forum and any advice from here literally helps me get the big picture.
Thanks, Eva
