hi, i am currently doing my gmat but still not decided which path to take, masters or mba?

here's my profile:

female, 29 yrs old,
B.S in Accountancy
certified public accountant in the philippines
7 years experience in the field of finance - from inventory, cost, general, intercompany, financial reporting, consolidation, financial analysis, SOX..
4 years experience in the Philippines from a multinational company based in Singapore and 3 years experience in Dubai from 2 biggest multinational company..
i haven't really checked my GPA but i think I'm just an average accounting student..
career path: wants to go into financial controlling/analysis

considered the following master's degree:
MSc in Business Analytics & Consulting at warwick
MSc in Finance and Management at cranfield
Specialized Master in Management Control and Business Performance at ESCP Paris
Masters in Finance & Risk Management - London School of Business

i am not a real fan of investment banking, hedging, etc.. i am more interested in business/management controls, strategy, analytics and working in a corporate industry.

i also don't wanna do any master's in accounting as i have been exposed to accounting all of my career and it seems that like doing the financial controlling part.
any suggestions/comments?

I think that you should consider doing the MBA. You want to make yourself the most marketable that you can be, especially in this economy. Also you should choose something that you are interested in and want to do for a living.

Although I have neither, I observe some of my friends and in your case the MBA is a better choice!

Why don't you have an ACCA?? If you had taken it before, you wouldn't need MBA or MSc....
