CFA Univeristy Affiliate Program logo

The Concentration in Financial Analysis has been admitted to the CFA Institute® University Affiliation Program. This is a signal to both students and employers that the curriculum of the financial analysis concentration is closely tied to the practice of investment management and is helpful to students preparing for the CFA Program® exams. This affiliation is only awarded to academic institutions which embed a significant portion of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge® , including the CFA Institute® Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct, into their curriculum. This recognition allows the Bissett School of Business to award several CFA Program® scholarships each year to deserving students who are completing the requirements of the financial analysis concentration.
