hi, im currently a senior finance and math student (undergraduate), im lost between chosing what to continue after this year ends
i have alot of questions in mind
first of all does completing FRM and CQF outstand joining and MFE program? obviously completing the CQF alone doesnt outstand it so i thought of completin both, id be working at the same time and saving money, and instead of spending a huge amount of money on MFE id spend it on MBA (some have a track in financial engineering, but a track in finance or investment banking would also be good i think), this would help me get to a better position maybe?
considering my financial abilities i need to choose between plan A (CQF+FRM +MBA(financial engineering track or finance or investment banking) ofcourse first year FRM 2nd year CQF and 3rd year MBA)
or B(FRM + MFE( first year frm second or third year MFE)) since completing both MBA and MFE would cost me more than 200 thousand dollars.

i know i might have a weak argument and questions, but im still an undergraduate student and i have no experience about those stuff yet.
another question, i saw a course called CFE ( certificate in financial engineering) given by risk latte, is it good? is it better than CQF?
and a final question, concerning the CQF alot of arguments compare it to MFE some say its better some say the opposite, others say its a pre-course to MFE some say its a POST course, im really lost about everything.
And if someone thinks that there would be a better plan please do share
thank you for listening, i hope you would help

As far as I know, MBA programs last between 3 and 4 years. It means that those 3 years of yours are going to grow.
