The Jon M. Huntsman School of Business is one of a select group of schools globally to be recognized by the CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) Institute for its work to prepare students to obtain the Chartered Financial Analyst© designation, which has become the most respected and recognized investment credential in the world.
The CFA Institute is a global association of investment professionals. Entry into its University Recognition Program signals to potential students, employers, and the marketplace that the Huntsman School's Bachelor of Science in finance degree curriculum is closely tied to professional practice. Students in the program will gain access to CFA Institute textbooks and other educational resources.
To be accepted into this program, the Huntsman School's finance degree curriculum was required to incorporate at least 70% of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge components and to emphasize the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. Because of this recognition, students pursuing finance degrees are eligible to apply for scholarships, which cover a substantial portion of examination costs.
“This recognition would not be possible without the hard work that our dedicated faculty has put into building this program,” said Tyler Bowles, the Economics and Finance Department head. “We continually strive to improve the program and aim for academic excellence and rigor.”
Students who are interested in the scholarships are welcome to fill out an online application form.
