I’m currently serving as an officer in the Army with ambitions of being a CFA. I have two years left in the service, but would like to prepare myself for this field of work. I have a Bachelors in Civil Engineering from West Point, but spend all my personal development time preparing for CFA.
Has anyone taken this route or know of someone who has?
How can I gain experience to take the CFA while in the Army?
Will taking the CFA early (and passing) benefit me? Or is it just better to wait?
Any advice or guidance would be very much appreciated.
I do not think you need experienece to take the CFA exams. You do need experience to become a CFA charterholder. I think you need 4 years of experience in relevant areas.
