8 Bachelor of Commerce - Finance students wrote the CFA Level 1 exam in June 2018 and 50% of them passed! This is an excellent result given that on average, over the last 10 years, 40% of those writing the exam passed and most who write the exam are not recent graduates and many are 2nd and 3rd time writers. We also had 2 students who graduated the year previously who did not pass on their 1st attempt and decided to re-take the CFA Level 1 exam. This time around, both of them passed, which brings the total pass rate of that year of students to 40%. This year, given the Humber BCom Finance Degree’s recognition as a CFA Institute Affiliated University, we are able to offer 15 scholarships to graduating finance degree students who write the CFA Level 1 exam in June 2019, which significantly reduces their cost to write the exam.
