Any success stories switching from tech to MC/strategy without getting an MBA? Willing to switch companies as well

Yes. Get onto a tech strategy project that has partners from strategy And tech, and work with them whenever you possibly can. Continue doing that until you've built up rep with them. Once comfortable, ask them or someone else at their level for feedback on your desire to switch... Then just keep running down that path. MBA is certainly more guaranteed, but the above path is very possible, if you kick ass on your assignments.

Hey fishes! I could really use some advice right now. I’ve been working in audit for about 8 months now and I’ve tried studying for the CPA as well. All in all, I’ve failed FAR 3 times and I’ve failed AUD once.

I’ve been considering leaving my job after I hit a year to focus on getting my masters degree in Cyber Accounting and passing the CPA exam. Any thoughts?

With my work schedule right now it seems like it’s impossible to balance studying and work. How did you guys do it?

How does everyone deal with early pregnancy symptoms during busy season? I’m not expecting anytime soon, but I was thinking about how I’d handle it the future. My fall busy seasons are 95+ hour weeks with spring busy season around 80+ hours. Especially during fall, I’m just exhausted for several weeks and have no energy. I’m not sure how this would work with first trimester symptoms and no one knowing. I also know I’ll be promoted before then, so my workload will only increase.
