Your Ask Joey ™ Answer

Is a master’s in accounting or CPA license more valuable?

If you asked 100 people in accounting, then 100 people should tell you to get your CPA license. The CPA license is the professional license for the accounting industry, and without it, you’ll never be viewed as a credible professional. If you need credit hours, then you can use the master’s program to obtain the necessary credits and begin studying for the CPA license. However, I would recommend obtaining as many credit hours in undergrad as you can. Take some extra online classes from the local community college.
