Dear muqtader

I don’t thing that I m senior………..but I would like to suggest one thing……..

If you have time , financial suppost & intrest to grow in audit then join one of the big three firm…..& start ur practice in audit ..after a year……..then U should do CISA……..Y…..?

Because u ve already taken globally recognized professional accountancy Certificate. If u wanna grow in short term immediately as well as in long term then u should do CISA that will add more value on ur CV , ur skills & provide broad & specialized job area…….i.e audit…..if u want to know further about y CISA then read my post “Auditors.......It is for you only........!!! “

Y u should not do ACA!..If u do ur article from Big firm that will add value with ACCA..It does not mean ACA will not add value but it is parallel to ACCA after having article from Bid three……


If u ve interest in capital & money market etc..& competency to do CFA then do it... this is the best & better then my first suggestion…….

Regards

I would recommend doing CFA purely because having done CFA you would be more mobile and may find it relative easier if you decide later on in your career that you want to head western markets.

CA, from ICAP, will may restrict you in being more dynamic.

Thanks Ehrar and DT...
well actually due to some personal problems i cant join big 4 though it was once an aim of my life to join fergusons...now having said that i am thinking to go for CFA as it is highly regarded here in the UAE.
CISA is purely auditing field and it may add to my auditing interest but about CFA i think there are far less people who have done CFA and I think it is better if i go for it.
