Undergraduate ICMA Centre students are awarded CFA scholarships
For the second year in a row, five students of the BSc in Finance and Investment Banking were awarded scholarships for sitting the CFA Level 1 exam. The scholarships amount to $350 each and are one of the benefits that come with the programme being recognised as an official program partner of the Chartered Financial Analysts Institute.
Henley Business School is one of very few institutions in the UK (along with Warwick Business School, Manchester Business School and Lancaster University Management School) to have an undergraduate program receive a CFA program partner status, which recognises that the respective curriculum is closely tied to professional practice and covers a significant portion of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge.
“We are very satisfied with the students’ willingness to enhance their knowledge and career potential by taking the CFA exam while also studying for the final year of their degree and starting to apply for placements. The allocation of the scholarships was a very competitive process this year as we received expressions of interest by more than 20 students. All of the recipients are top students with average marks in their second year of studies of 70% or more”, commented programme director Dr Ioannis Oikonomou.
