I am a MBA finance with experience of 5 yr+ as a credit analyst in a Bank. I want to start my own consultancy in few years and i feel C. A. will help me in doing that. Can i do a C. A. course along with my existing job. What about the articleship. Is it compulsory. In case i have to leave job for Articleship what best i can get so that i don't have to sacrifice most of my current compensation. Gradualy i plan to work as a full time consultant. Please help.
