Is the CFA worth it for an MBA/CPA?
Brand new to 300hours.com and already a lot on my mind. I am wondering if the community can help me in making a very important career, academic and personal decision.
For the last couple of years, every year I kick around the idea of going forward with the CFA exam. Not counting this time, every year I said it wasn't going to be feasible. I'm wondering this time around: is it worth it?
Here is my background: I have a CPA as well as an MBA from a very well known university. I thought I was 'done' with school when I completed my MBA but now was wondering was could further boost my credentials and my career. I work in corporate banking and have my own consulting business as well - I believe the CFA charter would be a credible addition to both my corporate career and my consulting business. I think things that worry me are lack of motivation and effort as well as finding the time to study and scared of failure on the exams. I've tried to push a lot of work/life balance in recent years and I guess I'm worried to derail that.
Any advice would be great and much appreciated in making this very important decision.
