DOnt just go for CA because everyone is telling you to or just because it is more tough than ICWA. You will be 31 before you become a CA. You will have to do non productive work for 3 full years and work for peanuts. .

.

.

IN fact, ICWA will be better for you. Let me tell you why. 

1) Your work experience of 3 years will be recognised for 3 years articleshhip in ICWA and you will only have to give exams. 

.

2) You already have a background in management accounting which is the core of ICWA. 

.

3) ICWA has a tie up with CIMA institute. ICAI has not such CREDIBLE tie up. ( PS: Tie ups with ICAEW, CPA Australia are not worth it. They are just acounting degrees which can never help in getting a immigrant job. CIMA will go a long way in making you a management consultant. 

.

4) There are less chances of you clearing CA Final exams than ICWA exams. Not because they are much tougher, but because the results are dictated by non transparent policies.

I fully agree with koolleo87.For a person who is already a MBA & is working,ICWA will be the best option.To my knowledge none of the other sister professional institutes i,e ICWAI & ICSI manipulates the results as is done by ICAI.If you're confident to get time for study go for ICWA.Afterwards you may also go for CS as ICWAI & ICSI are having reciprocal arrangements for final qualified students.I'm sure MBA along with CWA & CS will do wonders for you in your career.All the best !!

if u r already MBA ....u may go for CFA rather ICWA/CA coz diffiuclt to clear n even if u clear inter n final 1 group of CA/ICWA it is not valuable till u clear all groups.......nowadays industry want specified skills not recognise degrees much............don't leave ur job to pursue CA/ICWA...........

If  you have 4-5 years then you should go for CA.  CWA requires 2.5 years. in CWA your job experiance will be count and 3 years articleship will be exempted. but in CA you have to do 3 years articleship & you should to be leave your job also.
