CFA Institute Renews SU as Affiliated University

Perdue HallSALISBURY, MD---The Chartered Financial Analysis Institute (CFAI), the global association that sets the standard for investing professional excellence and administers the investing industry gold standard - CFA charter, has renewed Salisbury University’s status as an affiliated university, providing benefits to students.

These include six scholarships reducing the cost to students taking the CFA level I exam from $1,250 to $350.

The CFAI has recognized SU’s B.S. in finance, investments track, as incorporating at least 70 percent of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK) and placing emphasis on the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice within the program.

SU was the first institution in Maryland to be named as a CFAI affiliate. Recognized universities are selected, in part, for their incorporation of best practices defined by CFA Institute into academic curriculum to prepare students for the CFA exam.
