Handelshogskolan Posted June 8, 2013 Share Posted June 8, 2013 Hi guys, I am a big prestige whore (honestly), and I really want to get into schools like Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Columbia, Oxford, Cambridge, etc. I am current at a top 3 business school in Canada (Ivey/Queen's/McGill) and working this summer at a Big 4 accounting firm in a very specialized tax group (involves helping companies maximize their tax efficiency). Anyways, if I get a return offer at the end of summer, I will probably accept it and work for 2 more years after graduating to receive the CA, CPA designation. Will I be at a big disadvantage if I don't have policy work experience? My GPA right now is an A-. However, I was on exchange this past semester abroad, and got all C's. These credits will transfer back as pass/fail. Will this affect my application? Lastly, what kind of opportunities are there for MPP/MPA students with accounting background? Will the Canadian gov't hire me with a US/UK degree? Thanks all. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
