Earlier today I posted a discussion on if a business/finance certificate held any kind of weight. This lead me to look deeper into other options, such as a Masters in Finance route vs. the MBA route.
How much weight does a Masters in Finance have in the PE/Hedge Fund world as opposed to an MBA? I think it is safe to say that MBA is better, but how does a Masters in Finance compare? Do employers pass over Masters in Finance resumes compared to MBA resumes (I know, loaded statement considering past work experience, undergrad etc. but just in general)?
Thanks in advance!
