    FT, I am working on MBA (Finance) and CFA. For me, its totally fascinating as the CFA study material and what you learn in and MBA classes have very good correlation (at least Level 1& 2 I believe). Overall, I get a chance to double check the concepts and learn about different asset classes in investments so that I can decide where my interest guides me :)
