Master of Economics after CFA for breaking into AM
I'm currently looking forward to move to US and break into AM to pursue my dream of becoming a PM. In order to do so I have to apply a master or Phd program, so IMHO the best one that suits my background is MA Economics.
For anyone wondering I have an Accounting undergrad with a MSF from a very weak university in my home country. I've currently passed CFA L1 and hopefully by the time I'll move to US, I'll pass L3 (and I might be able to get my charter). I have a couple of years of experience as an equity analyst (buy-side) in a non-existing market (face palm) so I don't think my experiences would be converted in US.
So is the MA Econ (I'm looking forward to University of Texas at Austin if anyone is wondering) suitable for this ambition or should I choose another path? Is there any risk involved with not studying in a business school? I think MA Econ would help with the PM role and another MSF would be overkill. I can afford MBA but not in US (probably UK which I don't really like).
Any other recommendation would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
