Hey, I am a 4th year economics major trying to decide what I want to do after graduation. I browsed the websites and looked at the relevant careers and would just like some additional opinions on the available designations. Is there anything I should know about that is not advertised? For example; How tough is the CFA? How usefull is the CAIA? How popular is the FRM?
One more thing. Apparently I can start CFA is my 4th year, which is usefull since I can’t take accounting courses at my school (different department). But what about FRM and CAIA? They don’t explictly mention that I can or can’t start.
Thanks for any help.
