Leaving public accounting to pursue my MBA, best exit timing? Rising senior inquiring.

After senior 1 year. An MBA with 2 years as a staff accountant vs an MBA with experience managing people and running an engagement. You've made it this far do one more year to really make yourself valuable. You're going to learn more as a senior 1 than you will in school.


After you get your bonus but if that doesn't work with your school timing then just gtfo. No reason to stay other than the bonus if you have already decided you're leaving.


Don't forget 401K funding, if applicable

The more years you wait the better your m7 chances are. Hard to get in to m7 as audit or tax before manager promo
