 About CFA Institute University Affiliation Program

The University Affiliation Program recognizes academic institutions that incorporate at least 70% of the CFA® Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK) with emphasis on the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct into their curriculums. Through cooperation with universities around the world, CFA Institute seeks to promote ethics-based investment education in university degree programs aimed at developing investment professionals. 

An Affiliated University signals to their students and to employers that their curriculum is closely tied to the practice of investment management and is helpful to students preparing for the CFA® Program exams.
