Hi all,
I am eligible to sit for CMA and CPA . I am currently evaluating which one to go for.
I know CPA is valuable but I like to work towards a career in finance, analysis kind of work, mergers acquisitions, financial markets.Am I better off with CMA rather than CPA because I am not interested in compliance/audit etc? I don’t wish to work for public accounting firms, I want a corporate career. Please can you provide some guidance here.
I can start CMA immediately but have to do evaluations for CPA and since I have international Chartered Accountant license, I have to get transcripts and start the process. Could take few months.
thanks,

I would suggest you to go with CPA as it has more scope and you get to explore a lot more (concept and content-wise) in CPA compared to CMA.
