I'm an American looking at going back to India, and I was wondering if one needs to go to an MBA/Masters to sit for the CA exam in India. Actually, I was wondering what the process is in general and whether its possible for NRIs to sit for the CA even? I heard that the CA exam is EXTREMELY tough and I know that accounting is slightly different in India vs the US, so I was wondering, for someone in my situation that is an NRI looking to become a CA, what would be the best way to go about doing this? Otherwise, would having a CPA be beneficial at all for Indian companies?
PS: I realize this might be the incorrect forum to place this, so if someone can put this in the right forum, if this one is inappropriate, that would be great.
