How is the CFA Program different?
Although most graduate school programs cover a broad range of topics, the CFA Program focuses specifically on investment knowledge. In addition, the self-study format allows you to continue working full time while you earn the charter. More than one-third of the CFA candidates surveyed in June 2013 cited career advancement as the primary reason they chose the CFA Program.
Employers recognize the CFA® charter as a reliable way to identify the most qualified job applicants. They know the CFA Program provides the skills needed to succeed and that earning the CFA charter demonstrates the commitment to excellence required of today’s investment professionals.

The curriculum is organised into 10 general topic areas that provide a framework for making investment decisions. Topics include ethical and professional standards, quantitative methods, economics, financial reporting and analysis, corporate finance, equity investments, fixed-income investments, derivatives, alternative investments, and portfolio management and wealth planning.
