I plan on pursuing a MAcc instead of an MBA due to my lackluster work experience. I have learned about a few designations in the accounting/finance field from old forum posts here (EA, ACAT, CMA). CPA is a designation I will pursue. I'm thinking professional designations would hold more value in my resume than the MAcc. Any one have information/experience with such accounting/finance designations (especially the EA which requires no work experience) in their job search in the work field and even in academia?
