BC Carroll+CFA= Real DealI see in past threads on here BC's MBA program ranks in the semi-target territory. I just did a LinkedIn search for BC MBA+CFA and ~90% of the people on the first few pages have ER or buy side jobs (mostly at mutual funds). I'm taking this as a sign that BC MBA+CFA is a pretty legit combo for... 8 1 year 8 months

HELP! Finance Professor Is DelusionalI'm going over my midterm for finals and I'm pretty sure my finance Professor has the wrong answers for two problems. He's not exactly the type of person you can have a rational conversation with, so I figure I'd ask here to see if I'm right before I challenge my grade with the department. SB's... 12 1 year 11 months
