A:

The CFA charter is a global charter. As such, valid work experience is not limited to the country it which you obtain your charter.

Also, remember that the CFA Institute indicates that you need a U.S. bachelor's degree or equivalent. Although an American degree is used as the standard, most countries around the world offer bachelor's degrees that are equivalent.
