Probably better to just get a job at an investment bank. You get paid a lot, with bonuses, and bailouts.

You’ll need a bachelor’s degree for an entry-level position/analyst at an investment bank (preferably in finance, math or economics) and a Master’s is preferable particularly an MBA over an MSF (is a shorter program and covers only finance and accounting) to give you an edge. It depends your age, background and goals; a few IBs offer tuition reimbursement for an MBA (such as Goldman Sachs) after internships.

I don't know that it would do anything - I have never heard of it and I know more than a few Bankers. The linked universities are not top tier schools where most IBs come from.

No idea who would care if you had such a certification. If you get a job in IB you have to take some difficult exams to get licensed by FINRA, these aren't it.

The series 63 and 79 (and other various licenses) covering regulations, etc. arenít necessarily that difficult - your firm (based on your position) would help guide and prepare you to obtain specific licenses. Itís cut and dried.
