Any education is worth it - it may come in handy if at some stage of your life journey you would like to pursue other opportunities or just will come in handy in your current work . So go for it

Worth it depends on what you want out of it. My view is that’s it’s only really valued in portfolio management. If that’s where you’re trying to get to, then starting to work on it isn’t a bad idea. But it is a pretty time intensive process - if you’re just generally looking to get to a more finance focused, that time may be better spent aggressively networking

Pretty sure peter olinto has his cfa

More certifications never seems to hurt. My former SM got his CFA when he was bored while doing an advisory rotation. Seems to have paid off for him since he’s not head of M&A at a company. He has his MBA also though. But, it’ll never hurt

Follow up on my case study for M&A

I have an offer from BDO M&A, I interviewed with KPMG with two directors and one partner followed with a case study that I posted about last week.

I haven't heard from KPMG yet, however, I was wondering if I could send them a nudge and perhaps somehow leverage the offer from BDO.
Any advice is appreciated.

Paying for my own MBA (exp. cost $200k over two years). Have $100k 401k, $6k HSA, $30k stocks, $15k Roth IRA, $50k cash. Planning to put $30k cash toward school, hold on to $20k for misc. travel/fun spending, and take loans for the rest of tuition/living expenses/food/etc. Is this the right approach? Would you play it different to minimize loans?
