Isn't IT advisory basically audit with a fancy name?

M1 IT Audit is a part of IT Advisory but those are generally roles that CPA students are specialized into. Other areas like RPA, blockchain, risk, cyber fall under IT Advisory as well.

Anything is possible but the chances of success are probably vanishingly small

I personally know an audit senior guy who switched over to S&O Finance as a C and got a 20% salary increase. I’d say if that’s possible, what you want is less of a stretch. He had the balls to cold email the service line leader himself and then proceeded to work on it for a year so it’s by no means easy, but definitely do able. Comes down to getting support from the right partner.

While not impossible, not typical either

Definitely doable if you pivot via an MBA

It is possible, but it doesn't mean you can do it

For those of you that left big 4 accounting to do MBA, did you leave at Senior level (3-4 YOE) or at the Manager level (5 YOE). I would assume to leave at manager level would be more ideal as when you come back to the workforce you should at the very least be ready to come in at manager or above at your next job? Thoughts?
