Hello dear student...
working experience or say practical experience matter more than theoretical idea and knowledge as practical experience will give you a real picture than any other thing.
Coming to your query, After reading above question i cam etc know that you are very much interested to pursue your career in finance profile and want to know what are the opportunities in finance field. I would say it all depends how much you are interested as a lot many opportunities lies in the market for a finance person as it is required in each and every business. The whole story is about finance only, that is the moto of each and every business, so finance people are required in each and every sector and each and every firm and company.
To start with you should start after tenth inly after tenth you should opt for commerce stream in plus two or say eleventh and twelve. After completing that so many streams like you can go for graduation in commerce or side by sude do chartered accountant(CA) or company secretary(CS), or you can go for MBA in finance after your graduation in commerce. so many more options are there apart from above mentioned like you can even go for CFA certified finance accountant which is international certificate for a accountant for which you need to clear some papers and after that you will be a certified finance person. CFA persons are in huge demand now days as they are trained and certified and most companies prefer such person for some post in their company, it is added advantage for a finance person providing more chances of selection for them in market.
Hope after reading above details you got your answer for your query.
All the best for your bright future.
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...
