    Which study material should be referred for clearing CFA level 1 ? And can we purchase it online?
    What is the approximate time duration required to clear CFA level 1 for an engineer with no Finance knowledge?

    Please suggest me good authors for accounting and corporate finance books?

    Hi, when you pay the fees, you get the ebooks of the official books from the institute. For additional preparations, you can refer Schweser notes and videos. Right now the notes are not released for Dec exam, so you can start reading previous year books. But dont purchase anything at this moment.

     

    Right now just take up any book that explains accounting concepts nicely. No particular author comes to mind as such.

    Sir, I’m an engg hoping to pursue an MBA in finance from NMIMS. Is CFA (Level 1 and 2) a necessary certification to secure a good placement in finance for engineers like me?

    @prajesh-gupta : It is not necessary, but having passed those examinations does help in your profile building as well making the ground more level playing since you will also have batchmates from commerce backgrounds.

    Frankly speaking there is not much difference. Also once you are in the industry and spent 5-6 years, it will be almost at par.

    Obviously if you compare it with IIMs, then roles offered in campuses like A,B,C, L and K are better. I am still not very sure if I understood your question correctly.

    @Prajesh:   CFA will surely add value to profile , but it’s not necessary as Abhirup Sir said. If you have serious aptitude for finance and have money , you can go ahead. But One can get industry recognition only after completing all levels of CFA. In fact, most of the topics in CFA level 1 is already covered in MBA Finance/ MSc Finance. As per the report from reputed institute , many mba/msc  finance students got high packages even after not  doing CFA. I hope it helps.
