 University Recognition Program

​​We recognize universities that incorporate a significant percentage of the CFA Program CBOK, including the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct, into their degree programs. Students in these degree programs are exposed to the topics covered in the CFA Program, enhancing their preparation to sit for the exams upon graduation.
