I have been working at a holding company for over 9 years, most of the older guys/gals have a CPA and the younger guys/gals have or are studying for CMA. Which one would is better in the long run in a practical sense.
In the long run, the CPA (or CIA) is more widely recognized. My question is do you need it? Is it a requirement by your company to have some kind of accounting certification? If so you may want to look into the Certified Internal Auditor as it would probably serve you better
Well if everyone has it in your company with CPA, then it's better you do. Cause you might be the first one to get downsize. Yeah, since you have nine years of experience, CPA might not as hard as you think. GOo dluck
