The CFA®Program offers an alternative to engineers without getting into a reputed MBA school. This program prepares them for the investment industry and they can eventually get into core finance with more experience. If you wish to make a career shift to the finance field, then you should opt for CFA®Program.
Being an engineer, you will find yourself quite comfortable in quantitative problem-solving skills. This topped with your CFA®charter can become a great match for the investment industry.
Is it a good idea to study Financial Modeling along with the CFA® Program?
Understand that the CFA®charter is a qualification whereas Financial modeling is a skill used in the investment finance industry.The CFA®charter is mandatory for those looking for a long-term career in investment analysis as the program teaches technical concepts used in the finance industry.
Financial Modeling, teaches you practical skills to perform company valuations and makes you corporate ready in much less time. Several students do Financial Modeling first before pursuing the CFA®Program, because the former is a good foundation for the CFA® Program. At the same time, such students can then have a broad spectrum of portfolios to choose from.
