    Not really. Two entirely different things, actually. The CFA is specialized, and usually only for folks in the financial services industry (obviously). CFA's are generally security analysts, portfolio managers and or/asset managers, and/or investment managers. You have to pass the standardized CFA exam to get the charter. I also think you have to have at least 2-3 years of investments related experience to sit for the exam.

    An MBA is much more of a general degree and is flexible enough to allow for a variety of careers--Investment banking, corporate finance, and sometimes accounting as well as strategy roles, marketing, brand management, etc.

    Exactly. It's three exams though, not just one. Each exam is six hours long -- 18 hours total.

    I am starting a hedge fund this year and, in addition to a performance track record, the CFA designation will help lend more credibility and win more investors.

    'Class' isn't about money, your place of education, or social status. It's about how you conduct yourself, your values, and your beliefs.

    I think people in all income and educational brackets can have class. That being said, I firmly believe that a good education, and a good liberal arts education in particular, is an invaluable life experience (I wish that phrase weren't so overused, but it seemed like the right one in this case.)

    I agree with you both, and like I said, I love my city and my school. I have been around people often who become very judgemental about quality of education - that is that they associate it heavily with the name of the school. They boast that anyone who attends an Ivy League would simply become rich and get a better education by default, and someone who attends a state school really has nothing to be excited about. However, when visiting Brown and seeing that some of the students there aren't even sure what's going on around them, I have to respectfully disagree with them. And laugh... a little. [​IMG]

    Why is Brown always treated like the ugly step child of the Ivies? I kind of liked the East Coast hippie vibe their students exude (my buddy's sister graduated in '02).

    Yeah, some people around here are complete morons (myself excluded, of course . [​IMG] ) Sometimes, I meet a person, and wonder how they managed to finangle their way past admissions.
