CfaElite Edge

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.

Practical Pedagogy

Our practical lectures are conducted completely on excel and other softwares. Students are expected to carry their laptops for the practical lectures. Our practical pedagogy includes:
1. Getting familiar with Microsoft Excel.
2. Extraction of various macro and micro level data.
3. Working on financial statements of listed companies.

Financial modelling is one of the most important and basic skill required in the finance industry. This is not covered by the CFA curriculum.
