Top 15 school or bust

@ey2 getting an MBA before you have real work experience is a terrible waste of money

Depends on where you get that MBA and what you intend to do with it.

I think you'd be better off getting a CPA and leaving public.

Get it if you want a career move. If it's a reputable school they'll get you a job in w/e field you want

Is that you Z?

that's a long word, "advantageous" you must be a wunderkind or something

Yea I agree with EY 1 , unless your going to a great school that can give you access to a great networking pool and therefore help you get a job idk if it's worth. If you have you Cpa already and want to do it then fuck it just do it.

Banking or bust

Why did you Graduate without a MBA?

If you want out of PA it's a great choice to change careers. I don't agree it has to be top 15. Obviously it would be nice but I know lots of people who went to non top 15 schools and got great jobs. Top 15 you will def get paid better but you have to weigh the cost out. 2 year programs are expensive!

Lessbereal top 20 maybe 25 or bust ... but again depends on why you're getting it. Had a friend get hers from an unaccredited school just so she could have the knowledge and improve her business and that was enough for her. Her salons in great shape now actually so "depends "

OP don't Ghost us
