Hello friends,

Is the CPA a very prestigious and rigorous designation to earn?

Is career Post CPA as financially rewarding as a decent (top 50 in the US range) MBA

That sounds like a question for Google: http://blogs.payscale.com/salary_report_kris_cowan/2010/04/cpa-salaries.html

No. They're not even comparable. A CPA is a certificate program, while an MBA is a full-fledged degree program. As such, the CPA is highly specific, while an MBA is much broader in terms of the management skills you will require.

Perhaps more importantly, a top 50 MBA program will provide you with more than just the education: you'll get career services support, alumni networks, etc., with an MBA.
