I’m considering leaving PA for a senior accountant position at a Fortune 500 company. If I do this will I essentially kill my opportunities of getting into an M7 mba program? My original plan was to go audit->TAS->mba because m7 rarely takes you from audit. I’m also making peanuts rn and can make considerable more in a senior accountant position. Does my plan make sense?

In a process of interviewing for a technical accounting manager job. Hiring manager told me that the position won’t have staff oversight responsibilities. So I feel this is a glorified senior accountant job under a manager title. The raise is decent 20%. Growth opportunity seems to be ok, 2 SM above me, one manager who has more experience, and 2 accountants that the SM oversees. It is technical accounting, so probably doing special projects etc. Should I take the offer?
I am not hired for senior accountant roles because they say they say I am over qualified. Manager level roles I am told I am under qualified. I hate the position I am stuck in 4 years at Big 4 Audit

Would this experience get me full cycle accounting knowledge?
