Ask managers at any investment firm what they look for when hiring and they’re likely to list competence, integrity, and passion. These qualities are notoriously difficult to measure, which is why having “CFA” credentials behind your name will provide you with a competitive advantage at every stage of your career.
This is why Tippie's Finance Career Academy worked to be named a CFA Program Partner in 2009. We're proud to be one of only 15 MBA programs in North America to receive this honorable designation.
The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) designation is a mark of distinction that is globally recognized by employers, investment pros, and investors as the gold standard by which to measure serious investment professionals.
Our finance course content covers more than 70% of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge. The Body of Knowledge encompasses the content of all three CFA exam levels. Since each level requires more than 250 hours of study, taking advantage of an opportunity to study for MBA courses and the CFA simultaneously is the smart move.
