Hi friends

Could anyone tell me what exactly do u mean by number crunching?
Is it pure number like balance sheets where we have to do lot of addition/substraction and understand from the numbers?

Waiting for reply :)


It includes,
Sampling theorems,
ratio analysis,
probability,
statistics,
formulas,
shares n stocks,
graphs,
percentages, etc, etc

Its not only addition n subtraction, it includes mul, div, derive, integrate and lot of things.

I want to do mba in marketing will it be right option to do cfa?


Hi, if you want to do MBA in marketing why do you want to do a hard core finance course? Also if you want a marketing profile in banking sector like that of a RM. Look for a course to give you basic knowledge of the banking sector. You don't need to do CFA for that.

have a small doubt which would is doing better now a days.. FRM certification or CFA...


Hi, both are good and add great value to the resume.
The decision should be based on the fact that is you want your career to move in a very specific and highly complex environment of Risk management or just in a broad lane of finnance. If you wanna work in finance industry (Not specificaly in Risk Management) then CFA is gudd else FRM. But both courses are kind of long term which eat up lots of time in preperation. Though you can also courses which are not that long and help you move towards your destinantion.
NCFM, FLIP, IIBF etc. Need to decide what stream you want and hw much time you wanna spend on tat.
