Can SAP FICO course add on something more to my MBA / CA knowledge and land me a good job ? Can I do this right besides my current course curriculum ?
This is usually one of the first question that I get from most of the Finance MBA /CA freshers. I will take this up in this post.
SAP FICO Course is a job specialization and not a general college level course. This should be taken up when you are already in a finance related job and have gained some working experience and have good understanding of what you are doing.
I am doing my CA final with 6 years of work experience and currently working in a manufacturing company as Accounts Officer. I have long aspired to learn SAP FICO, but till date I haven’t. I enquired Siemens and other Partners of SAP long back. They are charging near 4 lacs for 25 days training for SAP FICO. I am not sure whether in 25 days training I will get complete grip over the module.
Now what i am asking you sir is,
How to learn SAP Fico?
Whether through self study, if yes, how?
through Coaching centres means which one I can prefer?
Please guide me, since this area is completely vague to me and my friends.
I am a B.com graduate. I graduated 3 years back and have been working in a BPO. My work has no relation with accounting or finance. I do not wish to continue the same job in future as I do not see any future in here . I have no experience in accounting or finance related jobs. Please advice what should i do.
Will it help me get a better job if i do SAP FICO training course ? What difference will it make if i do the course from an ordinary training institute who charge not more than 30K for teaching SAP.
Is SAP FICO Certification training and exam worth the money ?
Are you looking for good job as SAP FICO consultant ? Maybe someone suggested the option to go for SAP Authorized training and then attempting the SAP FICO Certification exam. Is it worth it for freshers ?
Totally Not. SAP FICO Certification is just not worth it. It is a ripoff of your hard earned money.SAP is just making good money out of this whole Authorized training and Certification business at the cost of innocent job seekers.
Lets start with the usual one.
1. Do I require a Finance Degree to apply for SAP FICO job ?
NO. I know few Non-Financial background guys doing great in SAP FICO world and have seen CA/MBA finance guys struggling to get it cause they just wont learn.
It is more EASY if you are a Finance Graduate/Post Graduate/CA/MBA Finance etc to start syncing in the concepts easily. That is the only differentiation from a degree perspective. How fast can you understand Debit-Credit , Balance Sheet/ P&L ? Of course the Finance degree guys have an edge . They studied those topics for 3/6 years vs a Non-Finance degree guy.
2. Can I join SAP FICO fresh out of college after my Graduation/Post Graduation ?
