@leolazer It was a govt bank as far as I remember , SBI , Indian overseas bank . they accepted the indian cfa and boycotted the american cfa degree , it was written loud and clear that no cfa holders of the american institute will be accepted.
my brother needs to do summer internship for two months july-august 2012 , But it is harder to find some good opportunities. Can anybody help. He is a bba student and wants to do intern in banking , finance or advertising. He is open to other fields also.
Well I have a doubt.
Doing CFA from CFA institute wont make us eligible to apply to Govt jobs for financial positions , I read in the employment newspaper , there was a requirement for an officer post in a bank and the requirement was a grad degree with cfa icfai and it was clearly written that cfa holders of the cfa institute will not be accepted . So if we ever want to change to Govt banks for a secure future , we wont be eligible !
Doing cfa from cfa institute will make us eligible for jobs in private sector banks , wealth management and all are opening up in India I recently saw a RBS branch .
And if we move abroad then we might have tough luck , because American charter holder will have an upper hand to an Indian charterholder , well , thats what i think . And the taxation laws differ I guess the cfa inst teaches us american laws and not universal laws ( I might be wrong , I have not gone through every subject ) . One thing is for sure that one cannot get a job in the Indian Govt with a cfa charter of the us . I want to join SBI its doing good. Well if someone intends to move outside for a job i might be helpful , but I think the Indian cfa will be safer . I started studying for the cfa US but these things came in my mind . and here's confusion again. Two of my friend got thrown away from their office , and they did their mba from one of the top 10 colleges.. initially their salary was 70k per month and it dropped to 10k and they had to quit and now they are jobless.. I like grueling working conditions but I need job security too . So Govt jobs and therefore the cfa from icfai.
@the ace.. not at all being sarcastic mate .sorry. i just told you that june might be a little early if you have not started cfa yet . everything depends upon you man ! if u can give some 5-6 hours a day regularly and retain everything . then u can give the exam. but as others are telling it will be a costly affair . register for december wala exam. do the full proof preparation and u should clear in one shot , i will be giving on this december too .
^ I guess its too early
btw im looking for a study group in south delhi for cfa level 1. near alaknanda kalkaji cr park
@somebody it was such a relief !! thank you for your positive comment !
please reply guys !! after droppin in between i was the university topper for two semester.. if that counts ... can cfa repair the damage ? anyways im specifically interestd in finance more specifically ib ..
ihv registere for cfa level 1 exam.. and im ready for it .. but the thing is i completed my 3 yrs bba degree in 4 years due to lifestyle problem in the past
doing cfa from us and later doing mba, will it recover my future ? or I will be left out from all the good universities and jobs
