The CFA qualification is a “globally recognised, graduate level curriculum that links theory and practice with real-world investment analysis and portfolio management skills.” The program focuses on portfolio management, asset valuation, financial reporting and corporate finance. The CFA Program consists of a series of three examinations (Levels I, II, and III) that are offered annually in June, with the exception of Level I candidates who also have the option of sitting for the exam in December.
To enrol in the CFA® Program and register for your first exam, a student must have one of the following:
• A bachelor's or equivalent degree, or
• 4 years' professional work experience (it doesn't have to be investment related), or
• A combination of professional work experience and education totalling 4 years (part-time work doesn't apply) Students needs to register and pay institutes fees directly with CFA.
Exams are held in June and December each year.
