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?

I’ve been working in personal tax ever since joining a public firm. When I look at exit opportunities in industry, all of them required full cycle accounting. I’m interested in going the controller route (grow within a company kinda thing) so I looked at my network and connected with a smaller public accounting firm where I could work as a senior accountant doing reviews and NTRs. Would this experience get me full cycle accounting knowledge?
