Second this one. Everything else is secondary to the CPA

CFA would be viewed as far superior than a CPA.

No one planning to do FP&A should be spending 3 years (likely more given the pass rate) trying for CFA lol. It's actually an extremely niche certification. Really only useful for hedge funds and some equity research positions. Much better to spend those 3+ years learning additional skills and networking.
