Hello Friends,

I Found the following question in one of the other professional discussion  website. But this question was always on the back of my mind. Since I too  always sometimes, while filling forms and like face the same problem, that whether a CA is a Post Graduate Degree or what??

Generally,  when we fill out any application form where qualification is mentioned, I believe we normally check the box marked ''Professional''. Can we mark the box ''Post Graduate'' ?? Do or can we get any certificate from the Institute proving this ?? "

I recall reading in the institute bulletin itself that the CA degree is recognized by xxxx universities as a Post graduate degree for entry into their Ph.D programs but am not too sure.

Looking forward to your views and opinions...

Regards

Hello All,

Thanks for devoting your time for this point.

NO doubt CA is a bigger degree than PG but my doubt arises, whenever we go for any course which says that the eligibility is Post Graduate. In that they don't treat it as PG.

No doubt, CA degree is more than a PG, but while making eligibility in some cases, they are not eligible.

One such ex. is that in case you want to give Net Exams, fo lecturership, you must be PG. For that it is compulsory to have a PG degree, inspite of being a CA.

Another one, recently for CPA in US one of the state that previously allows Indian CA's to go for CPA has now removed Indian CA's from their eligibility list. But as per their eligibility requirements, it is possible that after credential evaluation some Bachelor or PG course may meet their requirements.

Also, consider a scenario (before AT certificate is implemented), in which a person who join CA and devoting 4-5 years of his life, and not going for any Bachelor or PG course, then even if after completing his CA, he is not eligible for many courses where Bachelor or PG degree is required.

I hope , I am successful in explaining my point of view to you all.

Cheers....

Dear all, if we go as per university rules, ca is a post qualification degree. Mcom  is a post graduation degree. If we CAs want to give NET/SET exams, we are not eligible for that whereas a Mcom cleared person is. This much is the difference between post qualification and post graduation degree.
