MBA after MS in Accounting [#permalink] New post 04 Apr 2008, 05:57
Guys what are your thoughts on pursuing a MBA after MS in Accounting. Would I be scrutinized by the MBA schools "WHY TWO MASTERS DEGREE"?

Typically,having a masters degree prior to MBA is not regarded as a good move. So, what are thoughts on this matter?

I'm planning on getting an MBA a few years after I graduate from my MAcc program.

I have an MS in Accounting... and am going for an Executive MBA... in my case having an MS gives me a minor advantage. Additionally, most people know that an MS and and MBA are two very different programs.

Have you gotten your MS yet?

If there is a gap between the MS Accounting and MBA in which you gain very good experience and you can give a good rationale for why MBA then I think it could be a plus but if you go for an MBA immediately or soon after the MS then I think it could be a minus. My 2 cents.

Macc to Big 4 audit back to MBA is a pretty typical path, no?
