MBA or just CPA

Postby nina09 » Fri Jan 14, 2011 3:37 pm

I was wondering if it was worth getting the MBA.

It seems to me like most of th MBA programs offer the same classes that I will take in the undergrad to meet the requirement for the cpa and some extra courses that I find useful.


The way I'm looking at it right now is a waste of time and money for just a title, Since my scholarship covers the extra classes and I will still have 5 year schedule to finish my degree.

Plus add the stress from taking another standardize test and work load if I get accepted.


But then again , I'm a undergrad and what do I know about law school .



Does the MBA will add anything ? or the CPA is enough.

If you have no work experience, getting into a good MBA program is gonna be tough.

This is law school FAQ, not MBA/CPA FAQ. But the again, i am a douchee and what do i know about lawlschool?
Do your thang and do what you can do. I will say one thing, if you want to go to grad school - try to save as much money as possible during undergrad and have the highest numbers so that you would get the most merit scholarship. Because ITE, nobody is a winner unless they either make it top of their class or go to top 10 skoos.

The mba is useless without work experience and without getting into a very good school. For you, it is a waste of money.

A lot of law school offer the joint degree program JD/MBA, so the questions is relevant to people who are interested in business law.

I wanted to know how useful an mba would be for someone who already had a background in business.

Is not that hard to connect the dots.

I don't want to waste money and time if something is not going to 1) teach me something I don't know or can get in the undergrad for $0 and 2) is not going to give me any type of edge.

Surely, you did ask about the experiences and perceptions of business law and JD/MBA in your first post.
Or was it just some quirky rambles, I beg to differ.
Obviously, nobody is interested in answering your question...
so bump.

CPA is enough
