I am thinking about doing an mba in addition to an msf. (preferablly to be completed in 2-2.5 years). However, I am willing to take the cfa or caia in place of the msf. Do you think the cfa/caia or the msf has more weight in the eyes of employers in the financial world. I havent' looked at any of the material yet but which would you say is more difficult? Here are my thoughts. I wanted to get a dual mba/msf because I feel that a traditional mba program with finance concentration limits the amount of financal classes one can enroll in. I think there is a law that y ou can only take a limited number of finance classes in an mba program. Is this true? If I were to do dual mba/msf, I would concentrate in something other than finance that im interested in such as e-commerce or real estate. thanks in advance.
Pros: can complete program in 1 year or less. Formal study. Get to go back to school
cons: can be expensive
Pros: cheaper than msf
Cons: 3 years of study.
