SPOKANE, Wash. – The Gonzaga University School of Business Administration’s undergraduate finance concentration has been welcomed into the Chartered Financial Analyst University Recognition Program.
The recognition means Gonzaga’s finance curriculum, part of the Bachelor of Business Administration degree, has incorporated at least 70 percent of the CFA Program candidate body of knowledge and emphasizes the CFA Institute code of ethics and standards of practice. The CFA Program positions students to obtain the chartered financial analyst designation, which the CFA Institute says has become the most respected and recognized investment credential in the world.
Entry into the CFA Institute University Recognition Program signals to potential students, employers, and the marketplace that Gonzaga’s finance curriculum is closely tied to professional practice and is advantageous for students preparing to take CFA examinations. Additionally, Gonzaga is eligible to receive a limited number of student scholarships for the CFA Program each year.
