Finance is a key aspect of business operations, therefore creating an ongoing demand for highly-skilled finance professionals in the industry. The Business School gets right to the heart of training, working in consultation with industry, other academic institutions and the Ministry to develop a rigorous curriculum to meet industry needs. As such, it is not surprising that the program has received recognition from the CFA Institute.
“Being part of the CFA Institute’s® University Recognition Program is a significant milestone for the Bachelor of Commerce (Finance) degree program,” says Paul Griffin, Associate Dean. “It sets our program apart from all other colleges in Ontario as we are the only college in the province to receive this recognition.”
Not only is this a significant achievement for the school, it comes with some major benefits for the students. The CFA Institute® awards 5 scholarships a year to Humber Finance Degree students, which enables them to write the CFA® Level 1 Exam for a significant discount. Humber’s Finance degree program is designed to prepare students to write this exam, as well as providing them with a pathway toward further education and credentialing.
Eight students in the 2017 graduating class have signed up to write their CFA® Level 1 Exam this June.
The Bachelor of Commerce - Finance program has been accepted into the CFA Institute University Recognition Program. This status is granted to institutions whose degree program(s) incorporate at least 70% of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK), which provide students with a solid grounding in the CBOK and positions them well to sit for the CFA exams.
