CFA® Preparation Program


One of the best paths to career success in finance is to earn the CFA® (Chartered Financial Analyst) designation. University of California Riverside has created a program, delivered by experienced CFA® instructors at Wiley, to advance you on the next phase of your studies – to pass the Level I CFA® exam.

The School of Business and the A. Gary Anderson Graduate School of Management have partnered with Wiley to offer graduate and undergraduate students at UCR and UCR alums the opportunity to participate as a cohort in a co-curricular education program designed to help participants pass the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) Level I exam.

The faculty of the School of Business at UCR believes the CFA® designation should be of particular interest to undergraduate and graduate students seeking to build professional careers in finance and to alums working in financial positions.
