Agree with C1, if you’re going to get an mba and not planning to go back to accounting a cpa doesn’t make sense. Personally, if you have an accounting background and applying to mba programs I would get the CPA out of the way first. Remember, you will probably be compared to other big4 applicants with accounting backgrounds and you don’t want to be the one applicant without their CPA while everyone else does.
