Hello Deepali,

A wam welcome to Career Guide.com

Thanks for visiting us and writing us your career query.

Chartered Accountant is one of the promising career option for the students who wish to make their career in the Finance and Commerce Sector. CA is considered to be one of the prestigious and promising career. In every industry their is a Finance Department and every organisation a Big/Small/Medium all need a professional person who will prepare their audit reports for the financial year,balance sheet,tax filing etc. called as CA. Every year there is requirement of around 50,000 professional certified CA's. Where as CA's not only have an demand in India but they can also make their career in the foreign countries .

One the completion of CA one have many career options either to practise CA or can go for the further education. Earlier after completion of CA course one used not to give a thought for further studies; would prefer practising CA. But now with the competition on the market CA's are also required to study further some of the courses. As my colleague Mr.Anand have already discussed many of the courses so i wont repeat them but would like to make some of the additions to the courses for you-

1.Diploma in Labour Law and Welfare.
2.Diploma in Taxation Law
3.Certified Financial Planner (CFP)
4.Certified Financial Analyst (CFA)
5.Diploma in Insurance and Risk Management
6.Actuary/Ombudsman
7.Certificate course in Import and Export
8.Certified Fraud Examinier
9.MBA- Entrepreneurship
10.ACCA
11.Certified Public Accountants (CPA)
12.Certified Internal Auditor (CIA-USA)
13.NCFM
14.Company Secretary
15.Certified Management Accountant
16.CIMA

All the above courses can be pursued after the CA course completion. All these courses are quite useful in the practise of the CA. You can select the course as per your area of interest and can make a career in the same.

CA+MBA Finance as discussed by my colleague is really a good combination.

I hope you find this information useful and helpful.

Feel free to get in touch again for your further career queries.

Wish you Good Luck

Thank You

Warm Regards,
Prathamesh Kapote
