CFA is the most coveted degree on finance which consists of 3 levels in total. Passing marks for CFA L-1 comes within a 35% to 45% bracket, in L-2 it increases to 42% or so, and in L-3 the passing marks increases between 45% to 55% or so. CFA is not only about stock markets, it covers anything remotely related to finance. CFA with an MBA is of global value, however, salary prospects outside India is higher due to the standard of living.

For CFA, you have to either be a graduate, or you must be in your final year of graduation. Apart from this, you can have a combined education and work experience of about 4 years. You also need a passport for registration.

CFA covers subjects such as Fixed Income Securities, Equity, Portfolio Management, Derivatives, Professional Ethics and Case Studies, Financial Management, Financial Markets, Mutual and other Funds, Financial Statement Analysis, Financial Accounting and Economics in depth.
