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.


cfa is a good course and has lot of reputation in us or say in global markets.
but it being distance learning course it is li'l bit on the lower side than mba.
but one thing is sure mba +cfa is ideal thing one can do if he wishes to do future in equity research. finance is very vast ya, i wud say more u learn more you earn.
