CFA program

The high degree of overlap between the content of some of the Masters Program units and Levels I, II and III of the CFA make it suitable preparation for those taking the CFA exams. Our program covers the units in a different order to CFA Levels I, II and III. If your main interest is in using the content of our program to assist in completing the entire CFA, then you should consider doing the above electives, as well as the core units.

PRMIA program

Students completing appropriate units will be eligible for exemption from PRM Exams I and II, which form a major part of PRMIA’s Professional Risk Manager (PRM™) certification program.
