The Indiana University Kelley School of Business at IUPUI is now a University Affiliation Program (UAP) participant through the CFA Institute, which is the premier global association for investment management professionals.
This program helps to better position students in both the Indianapolis undergraduate program and the Evening MBA Program who hope to obtain the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation. The CFA charter is the most respected and recognized investment credential in the world.
Through this affiliation, the Kelley School at IUPUI now has 11 scholarships available to students looking to take the CFA exams. Finance students will also now have complimentary access to sample exams and other materials.
The CFA credential is held by more than 160,000 professionals around the world. To receive the credential, candidates must pass three exams and obtain four years of professional work experience in the investment decision-making process.
"We are proud to partner with the CFA Institute to offer this opportunity for our students. The CFA credential demonstrates professional knowledge and high standards of ethics. This partnership is an example of how the Kelley School prepares students for careers in the investment industry and is a testament to the quality of our programs," said Ken Carow, CFA and executive associate dean of faculty and research and professor of finance at the Kelley School of Business on IUPUI's campus.
