CFA vs CPA for a Career in Finance in Canada
I was debating whether to pursue CFA vs CPA. Brief background, 8 years experience in Technology Consulting. Pursuing MBA at province level MBA in Western Canada(ranked within top 10 in Canada).
Have passed CFA Level 1 and thinking to write CFA Level 2 at the end of the 2nd year. However on observing replies on this forum: Most investment jobs are in Toronto, where we have an oversupply of CFAs.
I was looking at CPA route and :) , even after finishing all pre-requisites, I need to do 2 years of CPE and then I can write the exams.
Do you think CPA is an easier route to finance.
The harder the battle , the sweeter the victory.
