Currently CFA has most pervasive and rigorous curriculum among all finance courses. However compared to courses like CA and MBA, where students are exposed to practical aspects through articleship, internship or prior work experience, a CFA student lacks practical executable skillset. This is due to CFA being a self study distance learning course with no practical aspects.
Hence most CFA freshers around you wouldn’t even know to build a basic financial model or to calculate the cost of capital of a listed company accurately. They have the knowledge but don’t know how to execute it at all.
At CfaElite, we will be working on the CFA curriculum conceptually to ensure they clear their exams smoothly and empowering the students with practical skill-sets that will be applied as per the knowledge they learn.
