I’m very curious about what people with finance related undergrads have knowledge of, that the CFA program doesn’t cover - or at least touch on.
I’m an engineer, with an option in management science. A fraction of my undergrad would be highly relevant/complimentary, to certain jobs in finance. However, I can’t even put my finger on a finance related topic that the CFA program doesn’t at least touch on.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’d estimate 85% of the CFA program is new material for an engineer who has never worked in Finance. I’d speculate that less than 20% of the CFA program is new material for somebody with a finance related undergrad. Is this accurate? Or am I out to lunch and drastically out of touch? Forgive me if it’s the later, just trying to get some color here.
