MBA- nobody cares about CFA

It depends on what you want to do. It's like asking a car or a bike?

CFA

My take is that you actually learn shit with the CFA and it doesn't set you a couple years back.

MBA gives you more connections.

MBA gives you connections but I'd argue that the trading floor or being out with clients is equally as good of a place to form connections. Be social.

Both but CFA first than MBA. If you get your CFA and realize you want to be somewhere else than in FA or IM or whatever, it would be good to know before you go back to school...

CAIA and CFA on the side. MBA if boss needs me to.

Unpopular opinion: the FIRE community is contributing to an unhealthy workaholic culture as we forestall healthy work-life balance in favor of reaching our “FIRE” numbers a few years earlier. As a result, work culture is becoming all the more intolerable as the bold few would-be advocates for work-life balance are sucked headfirst into the rat race, and no one is left to fix things from the inside.

Society overall would be better served by a more community-minded approach to work-life balance.
