Job apps normally say “CPA strongly preferred” but I know most expect you to have it for upper levels. But if you’re looking to move out of FS reporting role, or technical accounting, you might be able to swing it. Short answer: getting it will never hurt, but think about what your “dream role” is

It’s required unless you have something else. In some finance roles a high caliber MBA may be a substitute if it’s not a pure accounting function. In tax a JD may be a substitute. If you’re an accounting major applying for an accounting role, you will likely need a CPA to be competitive.
