That was sorta what I figured. I assume it's part-time (where if you don't mind sharing)?
The company I'm with is great, but I don't see a future here beyond 10 years or so. Our corporate HQ is in NYC and I seriously doubt I'd move that direction for a job. The wife is on track to be a partner in her accounting firm in MD.
Lol, ya, me too...
I have somewhat of similar background (I'm currently a financial analyst, CMA not CPA, & am just shy of a MS in Accounting). Did you find the audit job was a key to you becoming a Controller? Has it helped you in your role?
Similar boat. I'm 30 now and I don't have big 4 experience. I should have pushed for it harded when I finished undergrad (was 25 at the time).
My employer will pay $5K/year for grad school and it does help. I'd still have to come out of pocket about $10K a year for UMDs program, though. That's not terrible at all, but still I want to make sure it's worth my time and money.
