The Master's of Accountancy and a Master's of Business Administration (MBA) both give you broader based education which helps you succeed as a CPA. The CPA profession requires broad based knowledge and experience because the business community of today has very complex and broad reaching issues which the profession is called on to address.
As it relates to the CPA exam, deep technical knowledge and broad business issues knowledge are tested. The additional education will almost certainly be an aid on the exam.
