Students who undertake our BA and BSc degree in Financial Economics (providing they choose Investment Management as an option) or undertake our BA and BSc in Banking and Finance will be offered the special opportunity to study the syllabus for the CFA Institute Investment Foundations Certificate which has been launched by the Chartered Financial Analysis Institute.
We are one of a very small, prestigious and elite group of universities that is able to offer this service to students. Extra lectures will be provided to cover the syllabus and you will learn about the tools and analysis that are used to make investment decisions as well as the different asset classes available to investors and much more. Studying the syllabus will mean that you will be fully prepared to undertake the examination to achieve the CFA Institute Investment Foundations Certificate’. Attaining the certificate will help you stand out from the crowd because it is a professional qualification that employers in the financial services industry instantly recognise and value. If you choose to sit the examination for the Claritas Investment Certificate at a test centre you will be required to pay an examination fee to the CFA.
Our MSc Finance degree programme was awarded CFA Institute Program Partner status. We pride ourselves on being part of a select group of universities that have gained Partner status for a course that is highly valued by employers.
