Need advice on joining CFA course 


I am a Business Analyst with more than 4 years of exp. for most of my carrer I have worked on Payments domain (handelling international payments through SWIT, and other networks, worked on different payment formats etc). I have done my engg. and MBA in Information Tech.

I have been thinking about taking up CFA ceritfication by ICFAI. I need advice from you all if atall I should go for it or not because since I am working on payments domain (part of finance domain you can say) and enjoying it. If I do CFA will it be benificial to me ?

please advice... I need to know the pros and the cons so that I can decide.

Thanks in advance,

I don't think that getting a CFA will help you in this scenario.  CFA is typically used for portfolio management, investment research, etc.  I hope this helps.

Re: Need advice on joining CFA course 

 Firstly, the CFA from ICFAI is not the same as CFA from CFA Institute. CFA Institute is a global body and much more recognized. Talking about the globally recognized CFA program, it takes 2.5 years minimum to get your CFA charter and as said above it is only focused on investments. It is extremely difficult for financial professionals too. I do not know much about the CFA from ICFAI.

Looking at your profile, I believe you can continue your path as a BA and neither pursue your CFA nor CFA, ICFAI.
