Alright I'll start with the questions, mind you I have no idea about cfa, other than what it literally stands for i.e. chartered financial analyst. So my questions will probably be noob-ish, I apologise for that before hand.

 

Now the questions, I heard in passing that CFA is the course name for CA in USA. Is this true?

If that is true, what is the duration of the course?

If this is indeed a course for practising in US, then, can such course be done from India. Coz In case it's too tough, it'd suck to go to a whole different continent and learn that you're not up to it.

I have more question on this, waiting for answers :)

1. CFA is altogether is differnt field than CA or CPA (the CA of USA).... CA focusses on accounting, audit , tax but CFA focusses on Equity Analysis, Alternative Investments, Portfolio Mgt, Derivatives.



2. the duration of the course is jus 2 yrs provided u clear all levels in the first attempt.



3. Dude, no course in the World is tough and yes it can be done form INDIA as well... Exam centeres are alloted in INDIA almost 3-4 mths earlier than the exam.

so is the CA 3 year articleship will be included in that 4 year exp. required under CFA.......

i dont think so, because articleship is apart of CA curriculm and the cfa institute has specifically mentioned that internship or training positions would not be counted towards work ex.
