I would recommemd you go for CFA

I'm taking the CMA now and plan on getting my CPA afterwards! Given that you already have your CPA I'd say the only benefit of you getting the CMA would be further your knowledge of management accounting as there is not much brand recognition from the CMA. However, as I've studied most of the material I definitely will say the content is much more geared towards the day to day work of industry accounting so that would help if that's your goal.

It helps! Thank you!

It is best that you work towards standing out. You could do that either through a top tier MBA or through CFA. CFA will open doors into finance which is a much more interesting field than accounting. And you just don't know when you will need CFA.

I certainly hope they cling to that rather than mimicking the actions of their predecessors. 🤦‍♀️
