    MBA vs MFE for trading jobs

    Not everyone with MBA or MFE makes a lots. It depends on individual. Similarly not everyone with MFE can be a trader. Being a trader you need to be informative and sociable as well - which is more or less mba materials! Being a trader you need to know technical stuff too - so MFE comes along. I...

    C# or C++

    He has to sell his books. You are right. C++ takes time to harness. I even thing any FE program that teaches C++ will not get the karate kids to fight.:sos:
