How do top MBA programs value work as a CPA for a few years? Also, is it common for CPAs to go back to school to get their MBA and work in finance, and is the prior work as a CPA a good foundation for a career in IB? Would not working in IB before getting your MBA work against someone who was a CPA beforehand?
precisely because a lot of successful small business owners come to b-school because they want to scale up their business, take it to the next level, and/or they realize that there are still some business school tools that they need to learn. Business owners also need to deal with clients and people outside the business, and having an MBA may increase the social capital they derive from those interactions - perhaps more invested seed funders, for example.
