I have a BS in Finance and I am taking the L1 exam in Dec. 2008 in Washington D.C. I am just curious as to what degrees people have when they take the CFA. So far, I am finding my finance background to be very helpful in my understanding the material. Any thoughts?
BBA in Finance (my school didnt have it as a BS). I too am taking hte L1 exam in Decebmer 2008. Is it me, or does a lot of this material seem like a review of what we covered in for years of undergrad?
bs in math
Most definitely. I had to brush up on some of my statisics, but everything else is still pretty fresh.
liberal arts. big time. CFA charter is even more important for us dudes with weird backgrounds.
ba in religion. Ask you could probably guess, I have a lot of studying to do.
Liberal Arts in Econ and Poli Sci… and graduated nearly 10 years ago so some of this is not fresh. But working in the industry certainly helps in some areas.
BBA Finance from the very prestigious texas state university
math & physics
economics & finance
MBA in Finance and Risk management
Bachelors in Physics & Electrical engineering MBA in Finance.

BS Computer Science Had to study a lot, but have worked at Mutual Fund Company and Investment Dept. of Insurance Co, so that helps.
surprised I haven’t seen a marketing major like myself…BIG difference from acct & fin, but working as an accounting analyst helps some
