Go for FAR first, that module is voluminous and when your clock start ticking after you pass FAR, the three remaining one are easily manageable over 18 months that you have. I'd go for REG next, since the taxation half needs a fair amount of time if you haven't work in tax. AUD and BEC are relatively easier and you can take them next in whatever order you prefer. Good luck!

Agree! Do FAR first. Financial Accounting concepts and principles should relatively be the same in most countries, I would assume. REG is the hardest, since every country will have its own sets of taxation rules. And the tax credits change too, some are extended and some expire. You will need ample time to pass this. And if you don't, you can retake and should be able to plan well ahead before your 18 months expire.

check the requirements to transfer your license. Depending on what state you're in and which country you're coming from, you might not even need to take all 4 exams.

Thinking about if an MBA is right for me. Ideally, I would want to start a business, move to late stage VC/growth equity, banking, irdk!

Would optimally want to go to H,S,W, Columbia, Booth. Idk if other programs are worth it given my previous experience/mentality around debt/income/potential cofounders.
