Prachi which course should u apply to is completely ur choice...which u have to make can't really help there.if u do want any specific dept wise query i can help u out in that scenario

Thanks trisry2i ! Doing a great job. Wish someone from marketing and finance along with other specialisations were also involved.
hi tryshi.. could you please focus on placement of IM and Finance... and avg. package ....
and hows GD/PI level...

As per the placement brochure for marketing and finance and the mandatory disclosure
posted on the site things don't seem to be rosy.Considering most colleges do not update that frequently and some times miss crucial data, XISS lacks some very basic features which might be important to prospective students. Add to it the student profile as per the placement brochure is too gradutate (3yrs) (please forgive me if I am hurting 'feelings' here but facts are to be considered) with merely 2 or 3 B.Techs per a batch of 60 and the average work experience is (Apologies again but i have no intention to hurt sentiments or stir a hornet's nest)

Dear CFA Candidate,
While we do not have any updates on the legal situation, we want to update you on an important internal decision regarding the CFA exam. After a careful evaluation, we have concluded that we will not open test centers in India for the December 2008 CFA exam even if permitted to do so by the Delhi High Court.
Given the number of candidates from India (over 6,000), administrative logistics, and the complexities of preparing and holding locations in Indiaalong with the need to maintain the integrity of the examination process and the CFA Program itselfwe determined that making this final decision now was the most prudent course.
Moreover, we strongly feel that this decision is in the best interests of you, the candidate. It will enable us to focus on providing you with a high-quality exam experience, and will enable you to focus on preparing for the exam without distractions.
We are communicating this decision now so you can finalize your travel plans. As always, you can find updated information on the legal situation at http://www.cfainstitute.org/india.
Sincerely,
CFA Institute

Finally all speculations put to rest !!

Oh yes, it will be a big gamble. The reason being your non-finance background. If you have done some "sincere" studying in the past on your own then you can take chances because retaining some 2500 pages correctly and analytically is as important as having a keen interest in finance. But then its your take, if you think you can devote some time and effort to it (ahem, and around Rs.50000/- i.e. if it's a non-issue) and are willing to push hard then you must definitely go forward.
p.s - I am getting hosed by all the economics and financial statement analysis.

count me in too.

giving the exam @ kathmandu. Currently in hyderabad but thinking to shift soon. But kind of doubtful abt the future prospects. I have abt 2 yrs of IT and 10 months of trading experience. Especially since CFA is tailored for US and indian markets are yet to mature to that level for full use of the course.

Hi,
Can anyone guide me to shops selling the calculators HP 12c / TI BAII plus in Hyderabad?
I am thinking of giving L1 in dec 08 @ kathmandu.
I could not understand the CFA logic, CASIO also makes financial calculators and could have been mentioned considering its wide availability but rules are rules i suppose.
