Military career change into Finance
Good morning all. I've been searching this site for a specific question but have yet to come across any info. I'm currently a serving member of the RAF (6 years). I have a BSc in marketing and have recently completed the IMC. My next step would entail completing CFA L1 and then possibly start applying for research analyst positions or something similar. My question is whether or not my military experience (managing/leadership etc) combined with a CFA will make up for my lack of actual finance experience? Also instead of the CFA, would an MBA be a better choice for my situation? It probably wouldnt be from a top university as money would be tight. I am currently 28 so hopefully age shouldn't be an issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
