CFA Investment Foundations Program

The CFA Institute, the global association of investment professionals, recognises the rigour and the relevance of Cass's finance related courses covering finance, banking, corporate finance, investment management and accounting and has awarded these courses partner status.

The CFA have recently introduced the CFA Investment Foundations Program which covers the essentials of finance, ethics, and investment roles, providing a clear understanding of the global investment industry.

If you are planning to study a finance related MSc at Cass and would like to improve your knowledge and understanding of the investment industry, undertaking this self-study programme can help you prepare for your Masters studies. It may be particularly useful if your first degree covered a quantitative but non finance focused area such as engineering or computer science.

The CFA Investment Foundations Program includes:

  • Approximately 100 hours of self-study with an interactive eBook
  • Access to online study tools, including a study planner, end-of-chapter questions, practice tests, and a mock exam. (All of these are also available through the mobile study app.)
  • A two-hour multiple-choice exam at a network of global test centers, with preliminary results provided instantly.
  • A certificate of knowledge awarded to everyone who passes the exam.
