||I have just completed my B.com (Hons) & CA. IPCC and am pursing my articleship(Ist Year) with a firm that has clients using SAP, Oracle.I have worked on SAP & know its very basics relevant to an auditor. I would also mention that after completing my CA I would intend to work in Management field rather than the Auditing line. Thus I would request you to guide me whether it is good option to do my SAP FI certification from ICAI. Also if you could throw some light on some other certifications that could be viable with the finance field & IT. Another way that I look is that I start preparing for my MBA or would you recommend something else.
Good to hear from you. If you want to move into management profile rather than auditing then I would recommend you start preparing for MBA. Getting into SAP field will not solve the purpose since this is a rather technical field and you can enter managerial role only after 10 years of experience like any other technical profile.
However, yes SAP gives a consulting exposure wherein you are more exposed to different clients from different industries. The fact remains the same: end of the day you are a technical person. Last but not the least, you are the best person to decide your interest area.
