Each programmer offers individuals some specializations, which fulfils a job requirement . The CA focuses on tax, audit and accountancy CS is an expart in corporate laws the CWA will focus on management accountancy and CFA will be an expert in corporate finance and mergers acquisitions. The common feature across all these programmers is that theyare professional courses focused on the " Corporate " point of view.

In this era of super specialization , the Certified Financial Planner ( CFP) , focusing on comprehensive financial advisory services to individuals has emerged.

Hello Dear...

I am happy to see you think for doing a career in finance. Finance is a big world and is not limited to accounting, taxation and audit. Many think that courses like Chartered Accountancy, MBA Finance, MFM, etc are enough to make a career in finance, but that is not the case really. Finance is altogether different than accountancy, taxation, costing, book keeping, loans, deposits, etc. I am happy that you approached CareerGuide for seeking guidance on this query.

For doing a career in finance, the basic requirement for a fresher is to get relevantly qualified and I would say highly qualified. The only course which comes to my mind for being into a core finance field is Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), which is offered by CFA Institute USA. CFA from ICFAI and CFA from CFA Institute USA are very different and global recognition is for the CFA USA course and not for ICFAI.

As per my observation, Chartered Accountants and MBA Finance qualified professionals are very much regarded as near to the finance world. However they have limitations. Further if one does an MBA Finance from Top 10 B Schools, only then companies give job offers in core finance domain, other wise the job placements or job offers are in the accounts, costing, taxation departments majorly.

Therefore I would suggest you to first judge for yourself that in exactly what you would like to make your career. Saying that wish to make a career in finance is vague and uninformed actually.

Also would suggest you to groom your communication skills, interpersonal skills for being employed to the prospective employers apart from your finance and accounting domain knowledge.

Best Luck Dear...
