Would I be able to get a good high paying job if I have my MBA from Keller Graduate School and get my CFA?

I currently work in the Capital Markets industry. Working in the CDO market. I know those are not well liked investment vehicles now, but I am getting a lot experience working with very complex deal.

The value of Keller varies greatly between companies and even hiring managers. The CFA would be more valuable as long as you intend to stay in investments. If you intend to leave corporate finance, then the CFA would be a colossal waste of time. Within the industry, it is treated equivalent to an MBA.

Keller is part of Devry, and a lot of employers do not respect Devry degrees.

In general, if you can get into an AACSB accredited MBA program, you want to go to an AACSB accredited program. A lot of employers will not hire MBAs if their program was not AACSB accredited. I'll link you to the website so you can look up all the accredited programs in your area:
http://www.aacsb.edu/accreditation/accr ... embers.asp

For some employers, in addition to the fact that the MBA must be AACSB accredited, the reputation of where you get your MBA also matters. So while, for example, it's not necessary, for most employers, that you get your MBA from Harvard; if you were choosing between Fordham and Montclair State, you'd want to pick Fordham.

KELLER GRADUATE SCHOOL (DEVRY) IS NOT ACCREDITED BY THE AACSB. GOLDEN GATE UNIVERSITY IS NOT ACCREDITED BY THE AACSB.

Don't waste your money on unaccredited degrees. There are a host of accredited degrees that will be worth the paper they are printed on. Some of them may even be offered online at instate rates. If your program is not accredited by the Association to Advance of Collegiate Schools of Business, then you will are not paying for a respected MBA. With MBAs, image is EVERYTHING.

(If you are going to spend the time and money for an MBA, then it better have the accreditation that employers are looking for, namely the AACSB. There are many 2nd and 3rd tier colleges that are accredited by them, and a number of online degrees. What would you be sacrificing by NOT looking for this high level of accreditation?)

Is Keller Graduate School of Management of Devry University good?

I am a Canadian living in Canada, I would like to get a CPA(US) designation. I need a master degree to get 150 credit hours, so I want to get a master degree in Accounting and Financial Management at Keller Graduate School of Management of Devry University. I do not know if this online university is like University of Phoenix online, because there is so many bad rumors about U of Phoenix (going after people's money and not recognized in some states?). Please advise.

Devry University is mostly a degree-granting university. It is not your standard research, not-for-profit university. It is viewed by many as a university that serves commuter working adults - just like Strayer and the University of Phoenix. Having said this, you need to analyze it from an objective point of view. If you just need a degree just to get your CPA designation, then go for it. If you are looking to get a degree from a top university, then this will not fulfill your needs. If you are interested in an online MBA from a top university, then I would suggest that you check out this article: http://www.macquil.com/articles/onlinemba.php

Not a mill, but not worth much either, less then a two year community college program. It is good for spending your money though...

The CSU-formerly-known-as-Hayward is a better bet. Keller is a DeVry program. DeVry is a for-profit school, which doesn't hold as much prestige as a traditional university. Moreover, CSU's are way cheaper than DeVry. You'd save yourself a lot of money if you chose CSU East Bay.
