Smile So you are a Chartered Accountant. How does IFAP help you?

It will be difficult for you to believe, but passing the CA Final exams is only the first hurdle, and a relatively small one. This is because your results in academics solely depend on your hard work and talent whereas in your career, market dynamics, business cycles, opportunities, your area of interest and ‘being at the right place at the right time’ will play a very significant role.

After clearing your exams and completing your articles ship, you will be shrouded by confusion in terms of career options and profiles, which will help you, achieve your professional objectives, provide the desired job satisfaction and professional growth. The question is how can a short course in Financial Analysis help you?

What can you do being a CA?

Arguably, no other profession gives such versatility to you career as a CA degree. Each subject in your CA Final exam can be a career choice in itself. Further, each subject offers you multiple career choices, e.g. under Audit you have Statutory Audit & Internal Audit, under Taxation you have Direct Taxes, Appeals, International Taxation & Transfer Pricing to name a few. Accountancy and Financial Management offer an array of options in the corporate and service sector. Again, all these avenues are open to you as a sole practitioner or as an employee. The possibilities are endless, and investment banking gives you a platform to realize a plethora of opportunities or even more.

What are the problems?

Usually the problem is one of practicality. Most CA’s are fine with accounting but have no idea on how to building financial statements with respect to industries or how to value companies. So many CA’s actually don’t understand the concept of the Dupont Ratio that is taught in our curriculum. They are unable to connect accounting to the real world of Financial Analysis, Equity Research and Investment Banking.

How does Imarticus Financial Analyst program (IFAP) help?

IFAP is one of the leading Banking and Finance Courses in Mumbai and Bangalore. It is a 3.5 month short term skill based course that brings a CA upto speed with Accounting as it is used in Investment Banking, Equity Research and Financial Analysis. A CA will learn how to value a listed and unlisted company, how to analyse industry, how to create financial models and put together collateral such as pitches and Equity research reports.
