but boss getting into IIM needs much more brains & hard work than getting through CA to get the salary you have shown there.

If you are really brilliant like an IIM then you will be gettin HIGHER than what you have shown, which will be higher than what any profession can get.

Some data is missing dude, no. of student appearing in the placement and the procedure of getting into IIM-C, as anyone can take CA but have to go very hard for IIM-C, dats y so much difference.

If u want to compare then take all the MBA institute, u will find they are being hired @ Rs 10000 pm, even an Inter Pass student earn more than that, and amount spend for getting that MBA degree is also to high.

A quote by Ratan Tata- " I need MBA for running my business, But CA to teach them how to run the business"

Just find the salary package offered by ITC to all MBA from IIM, engineer from IIT and Fresher CA- it's 10.61 lac per annum at present and next year it might rise to 12.5 lacs.

That's all, now u can compare and get u result or decision.

yaa 70 lacs to 11 students out of which 7 only accepted. 4 rejected because they didn't want to endanger their lives in the uncertain places of africa like nigeria,somalia and where ur employer says"we will pay ur ransom 4 times" in the contract. CAs can get 3 crores even in icai placement; if they are ready to go to baghdad. take that.

I am fully agree with Sunoj initiation. My points is..... There is very hard work and require huge amount of time to go through the C.A course as compare to IIM-MBA, But we get very nominal in return of it. There is no guarentee that u will get the results of your hard work as it is practical oriented course and Noone is fully practicable due to unsuitable norms of practical training. So we need to think about that minutely and analytically. Moreover when we get the truth about C.A course the, we insist on not to compare it with others one. So friends Post here only true comments n facts and do not attach with saying story ony.

I am fully agree with ashish because we must compare overall students of ICAI & IIMs . there were so many diffrence. I think a ca inter passed student more earn than a un qualified mba. we will compare it ALL STEPS of our  study.

These two campareble not right because

1. a CA are required for essential for company for smooth function but IIM MBA are optional

2. All Indian company not bear IIM but All company bear CA Cost

3. If CA result are out as only IIM then CA package are more than IIM

4. IF CA result out as lower IIM then what happen indian industry can u think, plz think

5. For Company CA is Like Water, without can,t live but IIM as COAL DRINK just formal

6. Mere bhai CA, CA inter, CA final are controlled all indian industry in different role

but IIM have no role in indian context just formal (bura mat manana)

Thank u all guys,

for posting ur views..i just say except rank holders CAs salary is not so high if u can not complete  with rank or with 1st attempt..some times some take years to pass n company don't consider articleship as work ex so those who can not clear final has to suffer alot..only rankers say of  ca final hired by HUL/P&G-the numbers may be 4-5 only get over 10 lakhs only..even big 4 pays very low as they r paying to freshers without taking articleship into consideration......time has come for CAT like exam in CA where time to complete  CA course becomes certain say in time given..allowing articleship in companies after say 1 year tarining with CA firm..emphasis more on presentation skills,communication.....all i can say because ca final is tough that does not mean CA will get high salary..ICAI should learn what is required in specific company n hone skills accodingly......ICAI need to do alot.........till then for finance IIM-C is the best...no doubt some said quality of students in IIMs r great..yes i'm agree..
