Fresh Opinions About CFA
The recent legal threat to CFA exams in India - which are now back on track for June 3 - drew a fresh string of comments from our users. So did our item standing out in an interview. Read more - and add your comments - here.
CFA Exams in India Face Cancellation
(Update: Not!) The possibility that CFA candidates might not be able to take this month's exams in India sparked a xenophobic comment from one reader (presumably American), which brought rebuttals from others. The last word thus far was supplied by BV, who works in Quantitative Analytics: "It's about education and merit....not about nationalities. The meritorious don't have to worry about either - dilution of the trademark or their capabilities!!"
The question of exam cancellation may have become moot. The CFA Institute's latest update reports that the Delhi High Court set aside an earlier ruling by an Indian education regulator, clearing the way for the exams to take place as scheduled on June 3. But the debate's not over. Add your thoughts here.
Meanwhile, the CFA versus MBA question continued to attract new comments this week - including a notable three-part comment by NR, a hiring manager who works in Research.
Standing Out in the First Five Minutes
Response to Myra Thomas' ace-the-interview primer actually focused on a post-interview pointer that concluded the story: the value of a thank-you note. Most comments endorsed saying thank you, but in a professional way, in contrast to the story's insistence on a hand-written note. Post your view here.
