This is from another forum. And it’s not the first time Iteracom has voiced that he thinks he is treated unfairly.
I disagree with both BS and Iteracom on this.
An MBA from a top-tier institution would certainly have benefit for a CFA charterholder. Actually, an MBA from a top-tier institution would benefit anybody. However, I would not go to Local State University’s part-time MBA if I were a CFA charterholder. That would be pointless.
Iteracom sometimes forgets that there are MBA programs out there other than Harvard, Wharton, Stanford, or Chicago.
However, if somebody did say that putting “Green Man, MBA” is preferable to putting “Green Man, CFA, CPA”, then that is laughable.
BlackSwan, here we have another example yet again where I get dragged into the flame.
All I did was answer the question if a CFA will help MBA admissions, that’s it. Nowhere in this entire thread did I say anything about a top tier MBA or low tier MBA. And yet here we are.
Do people read anymore before replying?
I think the reason that you seem to catch flak while BS gets away with it is because you don’t qualify your opinion like BS does. For example, a long time ago in a thread far, far away, I said “Debits go on the left and Credits go on the right. They teach you this at Local State and at Harvard. I don’t know why people think they learn it better at Harvard.”
Black Swan took the time to explain why full-time programs are better than part-time programs. You just said, “Stop with the debit/credit crap. Only accountants do that.” Then you insinuated the “Top 10 or rustified hack-a-sack” argument.
What you said isn’t really fundamentally different from what BS said, you just say it in a little more abrasive manner, and don’t tend to explain yourself. I think you believe that your opinions are realities that should be self-evident, and a lot of time they are not.
And I made the comment about “good MBA’s” vs. “bad MBA’s” for the benefit of the other posters, not you. And I still think that it was a valid distinction, because a lot of people believe that all MBA’s are created equal, and they are not. If I were a CPA/CFA, I would find very little reason to go to Local State, but would gladly accept an opportunity to go to Harvard.
I didnt even read the crap above, but why are you posting this?
Maybe you should at least read the crap above before you call someone a tard. There’s no reason to be rude.
But to answer your question, Iteracom has said in the past that he catches a bunch of crap, when he says basically the same thing as BS or Bchad. I wanted to bring it to his attention, but didn’t think that the other thread was the place to do it. And we don’t have IM on here, and this would also permit others to say what they think as well.
For the record, I like Iteracom, and think that he adds a lot to the board. I also think that he means well. I just tend to disagree with him oftentimes, especially in regards to B-school programs.
Iteracom only gets his feelings hurt by those with a top 2 MBA, 3/3 CFA, work at GS, MS, KKR, AQR, etc, and have a dong longer than a Subway Sandwich. Otherwise he brushes it off and reminds himself that he’s a bawss repping the SS moving markets with every keystroke from deep within his shared cubicle.
hey greenman, what was your handle on this board before you became greenman?
Doesn’t matter. I didn’t change my name because I was trying to hide from anything. But when I signed up, I wasn’t aware that I didn’t have the option of changing my handle. And my original handle revealed a little more personal information that I wanted people to know.
And I go by Greenman72 on other forums as well. But this is the forum I’m on 90% of the time.
I’m not crying about it, and I certainly don’t mean it to be a personal attack on you. But you’ve said a few times now that people respond to your opinion with vitriol, and I just wanted to state my opinion as to why. Again, you’re one of my favorite posters on here, so don’t start thinking that I don’t have love for the Iteracom.
And if I’d known that it was going to cause such a racket, I wouldn’t have posted it in the first place. But we’re here now, so…
