We’ve Got Three Options to Help You Decide
Would you like to sample a demo class before you decide?
Come and attend a free demo class in Hyderabad to experience the benefits of our active classroom and meet our instructors. Centre located at Lakdika Pool, Hyderabad.
Many students and working professionals are planning to pursue the CFA qualification. But before they embark, they want to see the sample study material, which helps them in understanding the content of qualification, as well as the depth of the content.
Is there a separate exam fee for all three levels of the program?
The Program fee is divided into a one-time program enrolment fee and separate registration fees for the three levels. For the Level I exam, the candidate needs to pay one-time program enrolment fees of USD 450 apart from the Registration fees. The Registration fee for all the levels is as follows:
Early Registration Fee
8 Months before the exam date
Standard Registration Fee
4 Months before the exam date
Late Registration Fee

As compared to CA, how are concepts different in the CFA® Program?
In order to practise as a chartered accountant, one needs CA as a mandatory qualification in India. As part of CA studies, students learn Auditing, Accountancy, and Taxation. The CFA® Program, however, makes you eligible to work in any part of the world and the focus area of the Program is Investment Banking, Investment Advisory Services etc.
What is the difference between the CFA® Program and CIMA?
The CFA® Program is focused on concepts related to core finance subjects like Investment Banking, Financial Instruments and its management for institutional investors. The program emphasizes on the analysis and research side as compared to accounting.
On the contrary, CIMA focuses on core accounting from the perspective of its use for the management.
Is the CFA® Program relevant for an Engineer?
It depends on a lot of factors and the engineer’s interests. After engineering, if you wish to get into the field of Finance, you will need an MBA degree from a reputed B School. Without this, it is often tough for engineers to switch to the finance field. However, the CFA® Program makes it possible for engineers to switch into the field of finance and investments without an MBA also.
As an engineer who wishes to make finance a long-term career, you should totally opt for the CFA® Program?
Another important advantage that any engineer gets is his/her natural flair for quantitative problem-solving skills. These come in very handy in the investment industry. If you’re good at numbers and have an interest in finance, you should do the CFA® Program after which you will find application in Fintech and quantitative finance fields that are some of the most dynamic careers today.
Should I study Financial Modelling along with The CFA® Program?
The CFA® Program is a professional course while Financial Modelling is a skill based course. However both are relevant in the finance sector.
The CFA® Program will teach you concepts such as Financial Reporting Analysis, Fixed Income and Economics etc. while Financial Modelling will teach you how to make projections or estimate net worth using financials. Pursuing both a professional course along with skill based course will help you get an edge over the others.
