    You don't need an MBA for Wall Street.

    Umwat.
    If you have managed to hold off so far, please continue doing so. :)
    Lol no your not. I mean, you could, but you wont. ;)
    Agree to both. I think that a light blue jacket looks super awesome with even lighter gray pants, like in the Cox example.

    Lol! Thank you for your concern. I've never owned a paisley tie, I guess that's what's drawing me to it. That and the fact that it's matte, almost looks like madder.

    @sugarbutch just posted this in waywrn. I like it and I just destroyed the one silk houndstooth tie I own (which was too skinny anyway). Suggestions for another? And where'd you get this one, SB?

    Ive been there, and have since sold all my similar type paisley ties. Go for smaller scaled paisleys imo. They have some on NMWA. They are essentially neats, but they are also enough paisley to satiate that paisley urge we all have. Also, large scale paisleys on PSs can tastefully satiate the urge.

    Thank you for the wise advice. I will keep that in mind and have a look at NMWA. Appreciate it.

    ^I just took a peek-a-noodles at SB's "Older WAYWRN pics" dating all the way back to 2011. I didn't find a single bad fit. When were you a n00b?!

    agreed. CFA is more important.

    And getting your MBA right after undergrad is not very useful either. If I am interviewing someone with that on their resume, I discount the MBA. You should have working world experience before going back for an MBA.

    Thanks, Noodles. That album starts at least a year after I joined StyFo. Lemme dig up some of the howlers...

    I have to disagree with Part II. This was more common in past decades, but now almost everyone I know who has an MBA has worked for at least a couple years prior to going back to business school (at least this is true at the more prestigious MBA programs).

    As for Part I, that brings up some strategic questions. There are a fair amount of post-MBA associate-level of similar positions where 3-5 years of work experience is sufficient, and 3-5 years after that (so 10 years post undergrad) one would be promoted 1-2 more times. The other choice is to get a few promotions and then search for more senior roles post-MBA in a way that involves using your network a good bit more than campus recruiting.

    A number of B-schools won't even take applications from people without a requisite number of years or work experience.

    Also, from what I understand, an undergraduate in business/management/whathaveyou is a relatively recent phenomenon.

    CFA, cannot be attained just by passing the 3 parts of the exam. If I am correct, they now require work experience, which they enforce strictly.

    Interesting, I thought MBA from Columbia or NYU with no job experience opened the gates to Wall St.

    Speaking for myself, I got my CPA with just an undergrad (MA required now). Been working 8 or 9 years. Reached a level where there are people reporting to me (mid level manager). At this juncture in my career, an MBA would do nothing for me besides put me in debt. There are no roadblocks for me in terms of moving up the ladder, besides myself. CPA and experience covers that. I just need to step up my game this year and I'll just be moving up the ladder. 2014 was a crappie year for me, as you all know.

    I'd agree with this, with an emphasis on the word "relatively." Colleges used to have core curricula where one would actually have to read great books, hopefully have an opportunity to learn to think and to get a broad education. Now you can take maybe a couple pseudo-liberal arts classes where you might not even know there were books written before 1900, have a business core where you learn some basics in accounting, finance, statistics, marketing and the like and then take a few classes in a specific discipline to get one's major.

    I say this as someone who was an undergrad business (finance) major, albeit one who read a lot of history, political theory and philosophy on the side.

    Yes, 5 years relevant work experience. I wasn't commenting the length of time, just that it is more useful for Wall St than a MBA.

    Well, I am sure having an MBA from Columbia or NYU and no job experience is better than no MBA and no job experience.

    Haha, well at least I know it could be mine for under $20!

    I and my groomsmen were all in TTB ties too. And I just sold mine at a recent garage sale because I couldn't even see wearing it again.

    Now I remember why I didn't put links for those in my sig. The image search by member function seems to be unable to index the pre-Huddler threads. In any case, this is the thread where I show my work:
