Most (national and regional) require cpa for manager promo

Most reputable firms, you’ll only get to Senior Associate. May get to manager position without one if you have CA (Chartered Accountant) which is international “equivalent” of CPA. However, even with a CA, most firms will not promote beyond manager so again you will be stuck. I’ve seen consultants go far without one, however most of them had their MBA. Increasingly, many consulting roles that required “MBA only” are now accepting CPA as a substitute whereas in the Audit/Tax/Advisory practice, you need a CPA rather than an MBA. In summary, a CPA is very valuable and opens many doors.

I’m advisory you don’t have to have a cpa but you do need at least 1 relevant certification in order to be promoted to manager.

A lot of senior leaders in my team have 1 so I’m really not sure at this point. The opportunity costs are high, but I’m well aware of the long term benefits. I’ve also already taken the GMAT and gotten a 740. I’m an Asian male and find the hurdles that we go through for admissions a turn off as well.
