I'm currently in IT strategy and would like to move in the M&A space. Will getting a CFA certification help in anyway?

I’m interested in learning more about strategy. I want to better focus my messages and be more active in high level strat conversations. I’m finding it too slow to learn by experience. So 3 Qs: 1.) Would regular/broader strategy courses be helpful in healthcare advertising? 2.) Does anyone have any great strategy courses that they recommend? 3.) Is there anything else I could be looking into?

Gearing up towards salary negotiations, I've got 2 YOE and 66.668$ TC as a consultant with no benefits. My role description has changed quite a bit since I started and I'm now the only colleague with a qualified QA degree in my team. I am considering putting forward a proposal of a 25-30% increase to match my role as QA lead, is this to bold?

So my problem is not with Twitter censoring calls for violence or hate speech. They're a private company and follow their guidelines. But why are they selectively applying it? Sure, censor Donald Trump. Why not censor Ayatollah Khamenei? How about Westboro Baptist Church which literally has the handle "@godhatesfagswbc"?
