The bolded text is your priority right now. Stick with what you are doing now, while getting promoted later this year. If you can get into Management, that will help tremendously regardless of which department. Management experience, plus an MBA, plus Accounting makes for a fairly versatile combination. Controllers for Auto Dealerships are a crucial aspect of the business and having all of the prior qualities would be on my list when hiring one.
This is just an example of some other opportunities that aren't strictly Accounting, but Finance related. Every industry needs someone to manage there revenue, and you have a good start with your education and work history. You can still make a good living doing this type of work for small to medium businesses where you would most likely start under a Controller getting ready to retire in a few years.
Figure out what you want to do, network with people who can get you into that field, start working those contacts until something presents itself.
