Clear focus , firm mindset , appropriate educational background with commerce stream these are the main ingredients to becoming a successful finance manager . Mainly Chartered Accountancy and MBA ( Finance) both the qualifications have great prospect and opportunity to pursue one's career as a finance manager . Apart from these two qualifications , Cost and works accountancy ( ICWA) , Chartered financial Analysts ( CFA ) , Cost and management accountancy ( CMA ) , Certified public Accountant ( CPA ) some duel professional courses with specialisation of Finance is helpful to widen knowledge and skills .

Through 2012 , employment of financial managers should grow about as fast as the average for all occupations. Despite expected steady growth that should match growth of the general economy , competition will be keen for position in financial management because there will be probably be more applicants than job openings . employers will look for candidates with expertise in accounting and finance , and will be especially interested in those with a master degree.
