CFA ®: a master key for professions in finance
Published on 10/15/2019
In 2019, NEOMA once again added up the achievement results for the Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) certificate, and they are much higher than the world average!
The CFA® is the gold standard that opens doors to financial professions throughout the world. As a forerunner in France in this field, NEOMA has offered a CFA® preparatory course since 2006. With a success rate of 70% for the CFA® Level I and 67% for Level II in 2019, compared to the respective world results of 41% and 43%, the school has proven the excellence of its preparatory course.
“Many of our graduates who have earned the CFA® while studying in the Masters in Management programme or the MSc Finance programme now work in major financial areas like London and New York, in particular holding financial analyst and portfolio manager positions,” explained Maria Ruiz Garcia, CFA, Professor of Finance, Head of MSc Finance, Investment and Wealth Management, and co-head, along with Stéphane Dubreuille (Phd, CFA, Professor of Finance), of the CFA track at NEOMA. “It’s a demanding preparatory course with its intense, strict and rigorous structure and content. The students are heavily involved in each level for 6 months! They finish with both financial expertise and a solid general understanding of the financial world’s culture. Just as with the CFA Institute, ethics is at the heart of the pedagogy.”
NEOMA Business School is an official partner of the CFA Institute and shares the same outlook on international finance with ethical concerns being a key value.
