Many of us have a finance degree, or are pursuing one. One thing I realized while taking courses in college was that very few of them are actually related to core finance. Accounting is a core subject, people study it to give the CPA exams and become certified. We do have the CFA exam, but there are no set courses for it. Most people study on their own.
There are many bankers with various degrees like accounting, law, and even medicine. Do you think there is any value in a finance degree? We do not learn core modeling, and most of our subjects are not related to finance.
Would love to hear opinions, especially of those who have degrees other than finance.
