CFA University Affiliation Program
As a member of the CFA University Affiliation Program, Imperial College Business School helps students from MSc Finance and MSc Investment & Wealth Management to obtain their Chartered Financial Analyst designation, which is the most recognised investment credential in the world.
The CFA Institute is an international organisation that codifies the skills and training of investment professionals. Its CFA Program is a global standard qualification and a prestigious addition to a students’ Curriculum Vitae when applying for top-tier finance firms.
As part of the CFA University Affiliation Program, MSc Finance and MSc Investment & Wealth Management have been verified as incorporating at least 70 percent of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK) in the curriculum, including ethical and professional standards.
This means the curriculum for these programmes is closely tied to professional practice and prepares students well to sit the CFA examinations.
