What is the best way to get a CPA certificate?

Hello everyone, looking for some advice on getting a CPA certificate. I've got an accounting background outside the US, with a mix of academic and work experience. Now, I'm at a US company and planning for the CPA exam. Wondering if I should go for specific courses or opt for college. Your thoughts and tips are much appreciated! P.S. - I'm not in the US, so only remote/online formats work for me.

How do I get an opportunity to intern in one of the Big Four accounting firms?

I am currently majoring in Accounting and I will be a Junior next semester (Fall 2019). I am really interested in interning in one of the Big Four (KPMG, YE, PWC, and Deloitte). There are locations near me and I have started applying to two of them, but what do these firms look for in a student? Are there any suggestions, things to look into, or courses I should take that would help me land a spot with them? #accounting #finance #business #BigFour #KPMG #PWC #ErnstYoung #Deloitte #CPA

Should I get Masters after I take the CPA exam?

I have a BSBA in Small Business and Entrepreneurship from a private university. I want to take the CPA exam, so I was going to go straight for a Masters in Accounting and skip a BBA in Accounting. Since I am now at a public university, there are about 17 prerequisites I must take before being eligible for the Masters program. For financial aid and time reasons (there are only a few classes between just fulfilling my prerequisites and actually getting a BBA, so I'm just going for it), I am going to get a BBA in Accounting and then take the CPA. Should I still shoot for a Masters after I take the CPA? I've been told by some people that a Masters is irrelevant and some have said a Masters is the new Bachelors since "everyone" is getting a Bachelors degree now. #master #cpa #cpaexam #graduate-school
