    I agree...it'll be a disaster if you return with INR 50 lac loan...
    So careful planning is required.

    The fees for a Math Finance program in US can be around $50,000 + living expenses that depends on the city.

    Scholarships are rare and you may find a part-time job or an internship.

    There are some loan programs but almost all of them need a US cosignor.

    Hey Anil,

    nice to know that u have taken CFA Level 1. How was your test?

    CFA is useful to get an entry level job in finance...common profiles are Equity Research Analyst, Credit Analyst etc. The Indian finance firms like India Infoline, Religare etc. pay less compared to Goldman Sachs or J P Morgan. And so getting into these foreign firms is a big challenge.

    Salary ranges are generally 8L to 12L for a start and it goes up if you have expeience or an MBA from a reputed institution.

    Hello Nidhi, Thanks for responding quickly! The information is helpful.

    The test was good, but learning experience was actually better.

    Regards,
    Anil

    Anil,

    It seems from your post that you are in IT and want to shift to finance without an MBA.
    This is possible but tough. The following positions are possible in this situation:

    1. Analyst in an investment bank like Edelweiss Capital
    2. Quant Analyst in a company like CapMetrics
    3. Derivatives Trader in Futures First
    4. Equity Research at firms like India Infoline, Religare
    5. Investment Research at KPOs like Evalueserve, Aranca, Copal Partners
    6. Corporate Banking at SBI, Axis Bank etc.

    I have purposely not included big names like GS, JPM etc. as they are difficult initially. So I am trying to get into these firms and then switch after some experience!

    Thanks! Sriram Raju,

    I was into IT for long, lost job during recent recession and have not been able to come back to mainstream again.

    I decided to pursue CFA as finance is a field that I have always been interested into. Although I have worked in the IT function for a bank and an insurance company, but got to learn only as much as was necessary for succesful development and delivery management.

    Your input is really helpful. I plan to explore job market after taking CFA level 2 exam in June'2011. Will that work?

    Regards,
    Anil
