Getting into corporate finance


Hi Sir,

After completing my engineering, I joined a KPO where my job role was to assist the Market Analytics team of one of the Big-4. Currently I am pursuing MBA (Finance). I have researched about 'Corporate Finance Analyst' job

My questions are:
1. Is getting a CFA (or any other) certification required/helpful in getting a Corporate Finance job?
2. What could be a good starting point for me to start a career in Corporate Finance?
3. Can 'Investment Banking' be considered as a next step of 'Corporate Finance'?
