Since I already have a MBA (even a Post MBA) in Finance, I can tell the difference. The MBA is more focused on corporate finance than financial markets, but a M.Sc. in Finance could be just as focused, with more advanced mathematics and economics. I also have two M.Sc., one in Mathematics and one in Economics, and an Accounting designation, a CMA, and I can say that the CFA covers the material that you absolutely need to know in Finance in order to apply it to financial markets, just like professional training programs in Accounting do for the Accounting subject matter, with a modicum of speculative theory about issues where there is still disaggreement among experts.

Why do keep reminding us of its existence?
O.K., if it eases your mind, we’ll wash it down with $3 Safeway wine.
