|Topic||I am an Engineer Like to do CFA|
|I am an Engineering professional. I got my master degree and I took many courses form MBA program as well. I am very fascinated be the finance stuff. I took some fundamental financial courses.
I always looking some thing that give me that kind of power and understanding as our One finance guy. As Others with MBA in finance from Australia and US are simply ****?
Well after carefully thinking I came up to this solution to go for CFA. I do not have intentions to pursue my career in finance but I do have intentions to know in depth of finance and investment management.
Secondly why I like to go for CFA is to make myself able to understand the financial news as well as to become able invest in the stock market. ( the later part is most motivating, i.e. to manage my personal investments in a proper way.. does this help or my supposition is wrong) ONLY CFA level 1 is ok for me or I need to have CFA all levels.
I would like to thank you in advance for all those who will spend few min of their valuable time to answer thoughtfully.
|you are definitely eligible to write the exams, since you have a bachelors' degree, but if you're in it only for knowledge on how to invest etc, why bother registering for the exam and paying so much money. Instead, why don't you just read the textbooks, and learn on your own? You don't need external validation from a testing authority to have basic financial knowledge.|
|I am an engineer (software) and I just sat the June 18 Level 1 exam. :) I plan to do Level 2 as I passed Level 1 with the help of analystnotes.
So you are not the only one.
I say if you are interested in the material, and the cost is not a burden. Go for it. It was hard work, but I learnt a lot and I enjoyed it.
There is a lot of demand (in Australia anyway) for programmers with domain knowledge in finance.
