Hi everyone,

Here is my situation: I am currently a CMA and employed, got a degree in Accounting about 10 years ago.

I am heading to a dead-end in my current job, switching job is seems doable only if i am willing to take a pay cut.

I am thinking to take CPA exam to enhance my education, however I don't have 150 hrs credit to get CPA license in my own state even if i can pass all 4 parts. I have no interest to work in public accounting considering my current age, and working condition in this field. I sure can get anotehr college degree or MBA to meet that 150 hrs requirement, however, the investment is too huge and i prefer not to bear $30K-70K student loan in this economy.

What is your thoughts?
