Can someone give inputs please!
I am looking for alternatives to CAT and CAT-based MBAs.
What are the opportunities in quant. fin. at the top IBanks after a master's at ISI?

1. How many of those charterholders are non-MBAs? Moreover, if you're already in the profession, obviously then CFA is going to be of some value, if not nothing. But I doubt if it would be as much as a value-add as an MBA.
2. Yes that is a better path perhaps.
3. It's all about alumni curr...

The only high-probability path to investment banking is through an MBA. CFA alone can almost never lead you to investment banking. And at an MBA too, only the top-notch IIMs (as far as India is concerned) - read A/B/C and L at the maximum. First of all, be assured that there are hardly any real f...

Please suggest a good book. Or what else i...

This is a hugely expensive examination.... a goddamn 1300$ for Level-1!
I am already pursuing CFA (appeared for Level-2) and some people were talking about FRM. Thought FRM was more focussed so perhaps this could be an alternative to FRM.

tmmfiitk replied to How to answer "Why MBA, why not CFA?"
I too faced that question about an year back, and felt that I wouldn't do an MBA. But then I realised that all good jobs in Finance demand an MBA. CFA can only be supplementary.

At 99.65 had just one call, that too in second list. Not converted, thanks to a 5.6/10 in graduation. So no confusion over whether to go to IIMK this year or not.
Aiming for a C next year
