Which is considered more valuable in the investment world an MBA from a top 30 business school, or the CFA designation?

CFA hands down ... Nothing in an MBA program one can't acquire on the job, except for an alumni network. CFA is rigorous and increasingly important for prospective money managers.

MBA, CFA

top 10 mba
 
top 10 MBA opens a lot more doors than a cfa, even though people with cfa definitely have more finance knowledge

Is it worth going to business school to get your MBA if it isn't a top 20 school??

If you can get a decent job, then look into working and earning your MBA while working - many schools have night/weekend programs that can be completed by professionals. This is a particularly good option if your undergrad degree is already in a business field. If we are talking non-top 20, then work experience is probably more valuable than the actual parchment. If you are fortunate enough, you will be with an employer that will pick up some of the tab for graduate work.

If your undergrad is in scuba diving and tequila tossing, then might be better to enroll full-time for the MBA.
