I am not a student but I think this is the best place to post. I am 33 and have 4 years of accounting experience in private company. I have a BS in accounting and a MS in accounting. I would like to either get the cpa or the cma. But I am not sure which one. I do not want to work in public accounting, for one I'm too old to try to break in. I would have to start at the bottom because I do not have any public accounting experience and I cannot afford to do that.

I have thought about taking the CMA, but I am not sure if it is worth it or if it would really help my career. To me it makes more sense to do the CMA since I do want to do public accounting. On the other hand though I know the CPA is the gold standard.

Thoughts?

I'm in pretty much in the exact same boat as you. I am going to go for my CPA, because like you stated, the CPA is the gold standard.

I've thought about this too. I have limited experience yet. Is the CMA worth much? When would it be worth considering preparing for and taking the exam to become a CMA?
