CFA Study Program and Review Course

Students interested in becoming a security analyst or portfolio manager should pursue the path toward becoming a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA). The Master of Science in Finance program in the Naveen Jindal School of Management at The University of Texas at Dallas is a Recognized University Program with CFA Institute. This designation is only available to university programs that can certify that they incorporate a large percentage of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK)—including the Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct—into their curricula.

As a Recognized Program, the University can award at least five scholarships per year for CFA Level I. Scholarships are competitive, based on performance in relevant class work and GMAT/GRE scores, and they are not need-based. The application period is announced to MS Finance students in August for the December exam and in December for the June exam.

Students preparing for the Chartered Financial Analyst exam sequence typically register for a review course. The CFA Society of Dallas/Fort Worth offers review courses at different sites in the Metroplex. Visit the CFA-DFW page for more information and schedule details.
