Here’s a fun question for all you Fools!Which designation is most “useful” (MBA, CPA, CFA, CMA, MPA…..)? Obviously, terms like “worth” and “useful” are subjective to the individual, so for simplification purposes, lets assume that by “useful”, I am referring to a high job placement rate and a high salary. It probably should also be assumed that for this case, a person’s interests and preferences do not matter.In addition, and sorry to keep covering my own ass, (but I feel some may point out the more obvious flaws in my question rather than answer it), but it should probably also be assumed that the University educational component of an MBA and a CPA ( now requiring an additional 30 credits beyond a bachelor’s to sit for the exam) are all equivalent in both time spent, price, and level of difficulty as the curriculum(s) presented by the organizations offering the CMA, CFA and other designations.This occurred to me after reading Nick Kapur’s “The problem with America’s MBA programs” article, and since I am currently an undergrad (Accounting major) ,well, this kind of stuff is important to me… :)Cheers and looking forward to what you all think,Grant
