forget about CFA,ACCA,MBA,M.Fin

All these are useless.
TA+FA ISH THE BEST!!!
Yea but to apply TA /FA at optimal level I am sure some accounting , finance, statistic & economics knowledge is useful right?

if it's Masters of Finance, rather than the one from uni of dublin, maybe you can look at alternatives like SMU and Macquarie U.

Master in Financial engineering from NUS/NTU with CFA level 3

Hello seniors in Finance and professionals. I want to do masters in Financial engineering Full time from NUS/NTU . I have completed CFA level 2 and wish to sit for level 3 next year. This is because I am an engineering graduate from the local university with many modules of finance education and wish to move to the finance industry as it is challenging and rewarding. But i work in a core engineering area with no finance industry experience. With CFA level 3 and MFE from NUS/NTU will it be easy for me to enter the Banking/Financial sector? Thanks in advance.

You must understand what your career goals are first. Finance is a very large area; it covers everything from sales to corporate finance to restructuring.

MFE programmes are very quant, meaning that if you will be trained towards risk management, or become a quant(reserved for only the brightest). It also leads to some trading roles. It is not geared towards training you for a corporate finance career (though you will probably already have enough knowledge).

If you have already worked for a few years, think about why a bank would want to hire you if it can easily hire a fresh grad for less? What makes you so special that they would rather hire you than someone younger and cheaper?

The answer probably lies in your experience. So if you do a specific field of engineering (like O&G), you have a competitive edge when applying for roles like equity research in that field.

Another good way is to get an internship first

i checked with the consultant and was told that they are offering it next year and suggest that i signed up for the grad dip first and complete the remaining modules in MAF in the following year.

Hmm I'm already in valuation control for few years now, had a short stint in credit risk though. My eventual goal is to go to market risk or if opportunities allow for it, would like to go for a quant role. U all think taking the FRM exam or doing masters in financial engineering will be better uh?
