For a CFA qualification from the US-based CFA Institute, you need to have a bachelor’s (or equivalent) degree or be in the final year of a bachelor’s programme at the time of registration, or have four years of qualified, professional relevant work experience or have a combination of work and college experience that totals at least four years (Note: summer, part-time, and internship positions do not qualify). ICFAI University, on the other hand, asks for only a UG degree for its two-year programme. It also offers a one-year accelerated track for chartered accountants, cost and worls accountants, company secretaries and certain MBAs (finance).
