How far can you go in Internal Audit?

I completed my Masters and landed a job as an internal auditor in higher education. I became a CPA last year and got promoted to senior with a pay bump. I love internal audit, but I mostly do operational audits and don't get much exposure to the accounting side. I'm getting a little self conscious about how little I know about accounting even though I'm a CPA. I'm in my early 30s and am concerned about how far internal audit can take me. My questions are:

1. If I stay with internal audit am I limiting my earnings potential?

2. Would I make more/have more opportunity in accounting versus audit?

3. How do I gain more accounting knowledge when all I'm exposed to is operational audits?

Thanks for any advice…
