In addition to what’s already been said, MBA programs put people into “buckets”, so you’ll be competing against other accountants. If you do well on the GMAT and stick out somehow, you’ll have a good shot.

Is the networking for admissions or for getting connected to internships or other job related opportunities?

You should be fine if you have can create a compelling narrative in the admissions process. Assuming you’re a white hetero straight male you’ll have to figure out how you stand out. Fortunately not many CPAs feel the need to apply to MBA school so you’re already points ahead.

I am indeed a white straight male. But thank you- that is reassuring!

I accepted a job from a place my friend works. She got me in and I'd be dropping a title level but making the same $ as my previous role. I accept and 1 day later my #1 on the list came through. better title, pay and benefits. The first company is stoked to have me and everyone is nice. I'm sure on the culture. I reached out to company 2 the week before I accepted this offer and they weren't ready, but now they are. They seem great, but so does everyone when you meet them. What do I do?

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
