Career develop: Do I need CFA charter if I’ve already got master and bachelor degree in Finance

  1. CFA and master finance are different stuff, definitely worth it

  2. CFA and master finance are highly overlapped, pursue both will be redundant

    Australia: do I need cfa designation if I’ve already got my 2years master of Finance degree from the university of Melbourne?

    As I’ve mentioned above, I feel like in Australia employers don’t really value master degrees much but experiences.

    However, as I’ve already got the master degree in finance. And 70% of the knowledge and concepts are overlap with cfa whole 3 level materials.

    Below are my questions:

    1 Does cfa designation really gonna help me for my future development if I’ve already got my master of Finance?

    2 How do employers value master of finance degree compared with CFA designation in Australia?

    3 Some one told me CFA is cheaper version of master finance( which I don’t agree at all). Some one said CFA keep your knowledge up to date and showing your commitment and interest in finance while you working at same time. What do u think?

    4 what’s other benefits for getting CFA Designation?

    kind Regards
