CFA University Affiliation

The E. J. Ourso College of Business has a CFA® University Affiliation from the CFA Institute, a global association for investment professionals that awards the Chartered Financial Analyst designation. The CFA affiliates with globally diverse, high-profile institutions that cover a significant portion of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge and embrace the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct in their degree programs.

CFA University Affiliation recognition provides a signal to potential students, current students, and the marketplace that the E. J. Ourso College's curriculum is closely tied to professional practice and is well suited to preparing students to sit for the CFA exams.

Because of this partnership, LSU is able to offer a CFA Capstone class, which helps students prepare for the Level I CFA exam, and CFA University Affiliation scholarships for all levels, which greatly reduce the cost of the exams.

Taught by CFA charterholders, the capstone class can be taken for three hours of undergraduate or graduate credit and helps students prepare for the CFA Level I exam by setting study benchmarks and reviewing problems to ensure students' understanding.

The CFA Institute administers the CFA and CIPM curricula and exam programs worldwide, publishes research, conducts professional development programs, and sets voluntary ethics-based professional and performance-reporting standards for the investment industry. The CFA Institute has more than 135,000 CFA charterholders in 133 countries and territories. More information may be found at
