 University Recognition Program

​Through University Recognition Program, CFA Institute recognizes universities that incorporate into their degree programs the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK), including the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct.

By integrating an important percentage of the CFA programs and standards in their curricula, universities contribute to shaping the future investment professionals. Also, recognized universities can support their undergraduates and graduates by granting them scholarships for enrolling to stand for the CFA program exams.

CFA Institute recognition adds value to the universities and to their student as they are exposed to the topics covered in the CFA Program and therefore enhance their preparation to sit for the exams. Yearly, over 20% of the CFA Program candidates are still enrolled in a university program​. Check out the latest CFA Program statistics​.

In Romania, the following university has one of its master degree programs recognized by CFA Institute as being aligned with the CFA Program:
