Since the prior set of posts discussed whether or not an MBA in real estate would be beneficial for career transitioners, I figured it would be appropriate to broach a similar topic, what about CFA exam candidates and charter holders?
Long story short, I work in wealth management now (aka it's really sales), am a CPA with 5years of public accounting experience (2 years within an audit real estate rotation in a top 6 firm), and want to transition to a CRE deal making team at one of the topfirms. Eventually I'd like to run my own portfolio or be part of a investment management team. How can I make the transition, learn more about modeling and not have to spend 100k in MBA tuition. Would the CFA be a smart alternative to an MBA?
