I would not do this, I’m pretty sure they’re absolutely going to audit that. It’s more than the receipt threshold, that’s for sure, so you’d have to submit receipts basically proving you’ve taken it more than once and charged it.

I’ve already ran all 4 without any receipt etc. which is what makes me wonder if I should yolo and send another one.

You mean the reimbursement for taking the exams? This would not fly. You may get approved for now but will Be flagged and you have to payback the extra claimed. I sent the reimbursement before passing all exams, they paid me the fees and then asked to payback since I had not passed the last exams.

The fact that ur asking this makes me extra weary of your morals and ethics. So yikes. And as an auditor? Double yikes. 😪

I recently shifted my career from data analytics to strategy and feel very passionate about this field. I would love to continue growing down this path, but I’m uncertain of what next steps are, specially to continue working in tech. Would love to hear what your career path has been and if you feel like an MBA is needed in order to keep growing. Thanks!
