I was just wondering whether CFA would be suitable for me. I am into accounting and would like to continue there. I am not sure how CFA is going to help me in an accounting career. Thanks

Also, it depends how creative is the accounting you enjoy. CFA is not just about accounting, but more about so called creative accounting, as far as i know.

why bother if you're not sure?????? it may add value if you want to change job. you may also do a little survey to see how many accountants've got CFA. there may be some other accounting exam, e.g. CMA, for you to pursue......good luck!!!!

It really depends on your career preferences. I was a partner with a "big 5" accounting firm. Most of the large firms run sizeable corporate finance and transaction support businesses. If you are interested in the field of M&A, I would strongly recommend the CFA program. I am a CPA and I can tell you that the focus is very different. I sat for L1 and sometimes wonder how did I function as a partner without the knowledge I gained and continue to gain from the CFA program.
