      Hi @kavadiba – you can take the CFA exams as long as you have a bachelor’s (or equivalent) degree

      I saw in the CFA website that in order earn the CFA charter one must have four years of qualifying investment work experience. So, in my case how will i be eligible.

      @kavadiba – here’s the CFA website you’re probably referring to:

      You can take the CFA exam as long as you’ve a bachelors degree OR 4 years work experience (doesnt need to be investment related).

      However, as you said, to get the CFA CHARTER (after passing level 3), you need 4 years of relevant investment experience. You can always pass all levels of CFA, and work until you get 4 years of investment experience (that is quite a broad definition, mind you) to get called a charterholder. It doesn’t stop you from taking the CFA today!

      To write the exam you need to have a bachelor’s (or equivalent) degree like Sophie said. To earn the charter you need four years of experience and obviously you need to pass the three exams.
