The ICMA Centre is very pleased to strengthen its relationship with the CFA Institute by having the BSc in Finance and Investment Banking recognised as a CFA program partner – in addition to the pre-existing recognition of the MSc in Investment Management.CFA Logo

In the words of the CFA Institute itself: “CFA partners with globally diverse, high profile institutions who cover a significant portion of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge and who embrace the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct in their degree programs. Recognition as a CFA Program Partner provides a signal to potential students, current students, and the marketplace that the university curriculum is closely tied to professional practice and is well suited to preparing students to sit for the CFA exams.[1] The partnership comes with a series of benefits to the ICMA Centre and its undergraduate students.

Henley Business School becomes just the 4th school in the UK (joining Warwick Business School, Manchester Business School and Lancaster University Management School) to have an undergraduate program receive a CFA program partner status. Dr Ioannis Oikonomou, program director said “We are thrilled to strengthen our valued relationship with the CFA Institute. When the leading provider of professional financial accreditations recognises the strength and practical relevance of our curriculum, it enhances our resolve to provide hands-on educational services of the highest quality”.
