CA with CS very good combination if you want to be industry.

CA with LLB also good combination both for practice & industry.

CA with MBA (top 10 only) is excellant in any MNCs.

CA with CWA is also good in industry specially in Manufacturing sector.

CA with CFA is very good for Security market.

CA with ISA/DISA is very good for IT companies.

CA with International taxation very good for specialization

CA with Actuariary is the latest trend specially in insurance sector.

CA with IFRS certification is like hot cake.

Many firms like KPMG etc., provides IFRS cerification course.

ISA/DISA is post qualification to the members of ICAI only.

Hello Friend,

As per my suggestion with CA you may go for CS to grab top opportunities at management level. CS is a very good combination with CS as far as course content and understanding the corporate environment is concerned.

If you are having CS qualification then it would be counted as an additional advantage and you can easily and confidently handle or administer secretarial work/department along with the account work/department.

This advice is based on my professional experience. Hope this would be off some help. Other courses are also good. But my vote goes for CS as according to me CS qualification is the gate pass for top management position.

Best Regards

Thanks Ankur sir.I needed a clear cut answer only like yours i.e.go for CS..No doubt all other courses are also valuable but it creates lot of confusion until you decide one. DO you have any idea about IFRS certification??

Hope your advise will make me clear in all regards.
