The program is a "post-graduate" course of study; it is not a "basic" introduction to the field of financial analysis. Candidates for the designation must have a bachelors degree or an equivalent of four years of qualified work experience in the investment profession. No investment experience is necessary before you take any of the tests. Many candidates enter the program with a business school education; many candidates have a liberal arts background. No specific "major" is required as a prerequisite for entering the program. However, the material in the study program and the examinations are designed for "masters" level individuals.
