    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
