Hi Cindy&Linda,

Hope you are doing well .
I have been working as a tax analyst for quite sometime now in a Big4 and wanted to do my MBA in Finance and move on to management consulting (on the financial side) .
And I've been told that generally accounting / related job are not really given high importance/weightage by the Adcoms . So my question here is , Would being a Tax analyst , cause a problem/negative effect, as accounting jobs are not highly appreciated .
And being a Tax analyst in one country , would make me an expert in tax of a specific country . So to say , if i have to do an MBA from outside the country I am in , would that also cause a problem during the placements ?

Regards,

Fudge

Hello Fudge,

It’s a great question. Tax is not one of those “sexy” career areas, and the very word might seem to imply narrow focus. Yet every application has its challenges and opportunities. I suggest that rather than being defensive about your tax profession, take the opposite approach: be proud of it, delve into it, make it sexy and exciting. How do you do that? Show (through anecdote and example) what’s important about it – its huge impact on corporate financial strategy for example, its ethical ramifications, what it reveals about the various practitioners and their approaches to it within a corporation, what it reflects and how it influences the relationship between enterprise and the particular country… see what I mean? All quite interesting. It’s your job in the application to make your business come alive.

And that’s the case regardless of what country it is. If you’re applying to US programs and you’re writing about your tax work in another country, portray and elaborate on these issues and details for that country – the US adcoms will understand and learn from your discussion.
