Michigan State University’s finance programs have retained CFA Program Partner status. The CFA Institute has reaffirmed that the curriculum of the bachelor of arts in finance and MBA programs offered through the Broad College of Business meets its stringent criteria for ethics and professional standards. Broad is one of only 36 business schools in the United States to hold the CFA Program Partner status.

The Broad College was first named a CFA Program Partner by the CFA Institute in 2007. Students benefit from the CFA partnership by gaining access to scholarships, CFA Institute educational resources, and professional development events.

The CFA Institute is a global membership organization that is widely considered the investment profession’s most rigorous credentialing program. It is committed to promoting the highest standards of education, ethics, and professionalism. To qualify as a CFA Program Partner, business schools must offer a degree program that covers at least 85 percent of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge, which represents the skills and core knowledge applied by investment professionals globally.
