As chartered accounting is related to Finance, the person has to have a high aptitude towards Finance i.e. Math as a subject.


As the saying goes, " Play with Math" is required for someone who wishes to be a CA.

Apart from that other qualities required to be successful are
  • Analytic Skills
  • Prediction / Foresee capacity
  • Financial markets and its predictions
  • Team work
  • Complete knowledge of finances

As a CA, you would be involved in managing the company resources mainly the finances, right from budgeting to investments to foresee future investment and returns and Audit.

You could work with PVT or public related or government organizations. After few years of experience you can start as a visiting CA or Consultant CA with few organization, but surely it would require a lot of experience in the field, and maintaining of good contacts.

Best would be yo work under a CA and gain experience or work with MNC and gain a better understanding of the financial structure and your role in it.

The main attitude you need in this profession is immense love with Finance and your ability to work with numbers

Wish you all the very best..............
