Partnership paves way for finance students
03 March 2009
UCT's Faculty of Commerce has signed an agreement with the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute (CFA), a global association for investment professionals that awards the chartered financial analyst designation. The partnership - signed in the picture by Professor Melvin Ayogu, dean of the faculty, and Dennis McLeavey, head of professional development content at the CFA - will allow UCT students to complete both the Bachelor of Science in Finance and prepare for the CFA programme at the same time. That puts them on the front foot when entering the industry. UCT is one of just three South African institutions that are part of the CFA's 78 programme partners in the world.
