Hi Guys. I am Eric Choi, from one of the top 3 university in HK. I have an offer for a full-time equity research analyst from a leading Chinese security firm and also another offer from Cornell MFE. My bachelor study was quantitative finance, which is the minimum level of the quantitative skills required for MFE. I am worried about whether my programming skill is strong enough to survive the MFE. Besides, MFE is quite expensive in terms of tuition fee and living expenses.
I would like to accept the job, but the base is really low, only 20k per month. Another way is that I accept the job first and then use the money(which I could have spent to study MFE) to go for a MBA degree. Do any of you have any suggestions on what i should choose? Thank you so much in advance.
