MS in ERM vs MAcc

So, I’m trying to decide between pursuing a Master of Science in Enterprise Risk Management or a Master of Accounting. Both degrees are financed so it’s not a financial matter. I also already have a job offer with Big 4 pending graduation. I have a B.S. in Accounting; however, I’m a little concerned that I won’t be prepared for the CPA exam with a M.S. in ERM.

Is it worth it to pursue a M.S. in ERM before obtaining work experience even if it is from an Ivy League?
