As part of our mission to promote the highest standards of ethics, education, and professional excellence, we have a long history of working with educational institutions around the world. Some of these institutions:
- Incorporate elements of our curriculum into their degree programs.
- Offer waivers from graduate school entrance exams or coursework.
- Work with local CFA Institute member societies to support student teams in the annual Research Challenge.
University Affiliation Program
The University Affiliation Program recognizes academic institutions that embed a significant portion of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK) into their curriculum. Through cooperation with universities around the world, we seek to promote ethics-based investment education in university degree programs aimed at developing investment professionals.
