Princeton MFE here (MSE ORFE) - agree with poster 1, if I had a do over would have done Harvard/Chicago MBA for networking and leadership - content is narrow and true quants are PhD level

Depends on what you want to do long term. MFE would be better if you want to get into crazy quant gigs (and are content with your current network), but MBA if you want to do more leadership positions in finance. I'd honestly go with the MBA, but that's just me.

Honestly had never heard of MFE before. To stay at BCG for a while, MFE seems overly specialized.

Agree with the above. MFEs mostly go into bank risk management or risk consulting. Skillsets are very specific to banks and risk.
