CFA is a clearly more valuable credential. It's also much more work and money

Depends on why you want to do

If you are interested in risk management or risk and regulatory advisory, FRM would be preferable

Yep. FRM is more relevant. But FRM material is way less organized compared to CFA. And ppl know simply everyone passes FRM easily

Get both ✌️

Can CFA get someone into banking?

^lol... I don't understand why CFA is so popular. There are very few jobs requiring CFA. Big four are doing a lot of Risk stuff so I thought FRM might be more useful.

Pwc2, I have both too and agree on use but no regrets. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey

@EY2 well, I have to admit that it feels damn good to have those three-characters behind my name

Pwc2, you mean 6.

Lol, true, 6

I am an MBA graduate (tier 1 B school) who joined as an Management consultant in Finance consulting role. My team is full of IT folks (with experience in Finance softwares with 6 years+ work experience). I dnt see the reason why they should hire an MBA graduate if they already have IT folks. What value add can an MBA guy bring?

With lot of IT folks in the same line of service, as competition, do you think Finance/IT consulting would be a good career option for an MBA graduate?

Thoughts please!
