Master's in Accounting=Financial Analyst? [#permalink] New post 22 Dec 2011, 12:24
I'm a recent graduate with a bachelor's in finance from Western Michigan University (third tier school). I have found it impossible to find an analyst position with my current history and was wondering if a master's in accounting might help me? I realize that these programs are designed to fulfill the 150 credit hours required to sit for the cpa but i was wondering if this could diversify my credentials and help me in my goals. I would be looking at getting the degree from Michigan State University or University of Illinois.

The accounting master's, as you rightly pointed out, is meant for people who want to go on to a CPA or who want to go to a specialized accounting role. Don't think it will really help in getting a better financial analyst position. For that an MFin, or MS in Fin may be a much better option.
