Do CFOs need MAcc or MBA?


In need of some advice…  I’ve worked in accounting/finance for 8 years at an Advertising agency, so I have experience.  I’m currently a budget analyst.  I have my AA in Business Administration.  I will graduate with my BA in Finance this May.  My dream is to become a CFO of an Ad Agency.  I’m assuming I will need to become a Controller, then Director of Finance, and then CFO.  I’m thinking if I want to become a Controller, I will need a MAcc.

What do you think?  MAcc?  MBA?  Masters of Finance? Or is my experience enough?  I will keep working full time no matter what.  I have already taken most of the core Accounting classes with my AA & BA.

Thank you for your help!
