The CFA charter is one of the most prestigious designations in the investment management industry. Learn more about what the CFA program entails and the dates for upcoming exams.
CFA Montréal and CFA Institute scholarships help make the CFA charter more attainable and give more people an opportunity to advance their career.
CFA Institute holds two global competitions every year to provide students with hands-on financial analysis experience through real-world case studies. Teams of three to five students are selected by participating universities and coached by an academic advisor.
Through the CFA Institute Research Challenge, students have access to mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis and professional ethics.
Ethics Challenge participants analyze a case that contains a variety of ethical dilemmas that they may face as investment professionals.
