Lincoln University has joined an elite group of universities approved to participate in the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) University Affiliation Program.
Now one of only 620 universities worldwide to be accepted, to be part of the program Lincoln has embedded the CFA’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct into its degree curriculum, as well as the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK).
Associate Professor in Finance, Dr Sazali Abidin, said acceptance in the program was recognition of the high standard of the degree programme, and will be recognised by industry, enhancing the employability of students.
“An Affiliated University signals to their students and to potential employers that our curriculum is closely tied to the practice of investment management and we are well-able to prepare students for the CFA® Program exams.”
We are proud to be part of it and to be able to offer it to our students, he said.
The CFA Institute is a global association for investment management professionals and the CFA® credential is described as the gold standard in the investment industry.
