I recently subscribed to this forum and this is my first post here.

I am from an engineering background working for a leading IT consulting firm in US for the past few years.
I have recently developed interest in Finace domain and am in the process of exporing options to switch from IT consulting into Finance industry.
I have started few classes in accouting and am targeting to take the CFA 1 exam soon.

Could somebody from this experienced forum help me understad if this is a tried and tested approach for somebody who wants to shift from IT into Finance?
