I'm going to be a senior this year and am currently enrolled in the university program that will allow me to get my masters of science in accountancy 1 year after obtaining my undergrad. My dilemma is that I can take just 9 extra hours of accounting courses in order to satisfy the requirements for the exam.
The reason I am considering not doing the program and just to take the extra classes is because it will be financially better and leaves me with the opportunity to work right after obtaining my undergrad degree in accounting.
So my question is this: Is it more valuable in the long run to go ahead and get a masters and the CPA, or will just obtaining the CPA be adequate? I will appreciate any insight/opinions on this as I've searched and can not find an answer.
