Hi,

Not really, for the following reasons:

  1. CFA is just a bullet point in your resume and definitely not a game-changer, even for FS-oriented firm
  2. MBA degree assumes that you know finance at least at the level of CFA1
  3. They may test your finance skills on the interview if it is critical, no matter what you put in a resume

I would take CFA1 if you feel that you miss these skills rather than just for your resume.
