Hello there!


Hearty Congratulations for completing your Chartered Accountancy course. Glad that you are also working in a PSU.

I liked your query very much since I appreciate your willing ness to further continue your education while doing your job. I have been an Educationist and have been counselling students from the commerce / management fiedl for more tha 7 years now and have been teaching and writing for many years now.

To add value to your resume and to supplement your CA qualification there are many options available. Full time courses, part time courses, distance learning courses.

CFA would be a very good course if you are interested in, however you need to keep in mind that since you are already working, CFA studies need to be planned very much in a systematic way. CFA course cannot be taken lightly since its a tough course and requires dedicated time for practice.

Apart from CFA, I would also suggest you to just explore certification courses like IFRS, SAP, Six Sigma Certifications which are good value addition to the CA qualification. Since you are working, these can be very useful.

Also you may look for ICAI Post qualification courses which are great value addition and are also very much recognised in the industry.

Alternatively, apart from professional course of CFA, you can also choose CWA. CWA and CA combination is also very good and demanded in the industry today. For CWA course, you will also get exemptions from some papers since you are a qualified Chartered Accountant. This will help in passing CWA in a shorter period and you will be able to study more confidently due to your CA qualification.

Also please find out since you are working in a PSU, which are the growing areas or which departments in the PSU are challenging and acquire relevant qualifications in that, however definitely related to chartered accountancy. Since if you do relevant and required add on courses, it will help you in your job work directly.

I hope you now have a more clear idea and this will help you in deciding your option.

Best Luck to you. Thanks.
