This helps you mainly in the field of portfolio or asset management. You learn different things like the basics of equity valuation(this is the core of the curriculum), fixed income valuation, pricing theory of derivatives, as well as financial statement analysis. It helps you gain a structural overview of finance. Generally CFA is pursued after completing MBA(finance). But nowadays students take it to get into finance.

Hie Anju, Master in Statistics as compare to a CFA is :- **CFA** This helps you mainly in the field of portfolio or asset management. You learn different things like the basics of equity valuation(this is the core of the curriculum), fixed income valuation, pricing theory of derivatives, as well as financial statement analysis. It helps you gain a structural overview of finance. Generally CFA is pursued after completing MBA(finance). But nowadays students take it to get into finance. **MS** MS in finance is not so valuable. I have seen people do an MBA after completing their MS. I think what you meant to ask was about MFE. MFE is Masters of Financial Engineering. You learn about the pricing of derivatives and arbitrage models and learn the theory behind it. After completing MFE people work as "quants" for investment banks in structured finance or do algorithmic trading(may not necessarily trade, they develop the models for trading) or HFT for hedge funds.
