Bachelor's Degree

CFA Course in Mumbai requires the candidate to complete a bachelor's program or equivalent program and have received a degree from the college/university. This makes one eligible to begin with CFA Level 1 coaching.

Undergraduate Student

CFA Course in Mumbai requires your selected exam window to be 11 months or fewer before your graduation month for your bachelor’s degree or equivalent program. You must complete your degree program prior to the date of sitting your CFA Level II exam. So the candidate must plan CFA Level 1 and 2 coaching accordingly.
