Hi, I am a student of 2nd year (BBA)and I want to make my career in Finance.
That's why I want to go for CFA(US) which is the Gold Standard and very prestigious among all Finance related qualifications in the world. But right now I am a fresher. After my graduation or in the final year, I want to do some other finance related course(s). If the reputation and salary after completing that/those course(s) does not become as good as that of CFA(US), I have no problem at all, but it should give me a good start to my career in the BFSI sector and later, i can take the challenge of CFA with a job in my hand. There are so many options like CFP, CIMA(UK), CMA(US),CCRA (AIWMI), CIWM (AIWMI), CWM, ACCA, Financial Modelling, Claritas Investment Certificate, CIPM, CIIA, CAIA and many more. I don't want to do Indian CA,US CPA and MBA. That's why I am not taking this courses into account. Which one would be valuable for completing successfully (not as tremendously tough as CFA where the pass rate is quite low) and getting at least a dependable job as well as getting a good start in the Finance sector? I notice that many people, who are CFAs, have done CA, ACCA etc before starting CFA and as a reason they say that they are doing CFA after these courses because it is an advanced qualification. I am really in search of such courses by which I can get a dependable job before starting CFA. I am also worried about best possible combination and sequence of courses which would fulfill all these above purposes. Please guide me regarding this. Thank you.
