IIM Kashipur has been welcomed into the CFA Institute University Affiliation Program joining the league of other 7 IIMs. According to the program’s specifications, IIM Kashipur will be incorporating at least 70% of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK) into the curriculum of the two-year Master of Business Administration (MBA) program. After passing the CFA exam at the end of the course, students will obtain the Chartered Financial Analyst designation, which has become the most respected and recognized investment credential in the world.

The CFA Program is the global standard for improving the skills, standards, competence, and integrity of financial analysts, portfolio managers, investment advisers, and other investment professionals worldwide. IIM Kashipur through this affiliation comes up with the goal to create an environment where investors’ interests come first, markets function at their best, and economies grow. The participation of students in this CFA University Affiliation Program gives the advantage for those bright minds of IIM Kashipur to grab the limited number of student scholarships for the CFA Program each year.
