Certified Financial Analyst Versus an MBA – Financial Certifications and Accounting and Risk Certifications – Waivers for Accredited Degree Holders

In recent years, there has been a debate about whether you should seek a financial analyst certification or an MBA.  Under the new rules, now you can earn both a degree and certification or charter. If you earn admission and attend an accredited business school then earn your business degree, you can now apply directly for AFA Financial Analyst Certification.

Here are the financial certifications you can achieve after you complete your finance or banking degree.

If you complete a degree in finance, go for the AFA Financial Analyst credential. If you complete a degree in financial planning, go for the MFP Financial Planning Certification. If you have a degree with a focus on risk, go for the CRA risk certification. If you have a degree in accounting, go for the AMA management accounting certification.
