MSc In Finance + MBA?

Prior to my US MBA with concentration in finance, in order to build expertise and learn about maths / economics / finance / coding. I'm currently torn between pursuing a Master's in "Management + Analytics" or "Finance" and my goal is to do a transition from IB/AM in the US after my MBA to hedge found or private equity.

A degree in "Management + Analytics" would help me become a more well-rounded IB/AM Associate as well as develop an in-demand skill, while the advanced degree in "Finance" would help be build expertise in Finance. How do you believe these two degrees would affect my business school and/or PE/HF recruiting prospects? Also, any general advice for people who plan to pursue a different Master's degree prior to their MBA? Thanks!
