This programme is designed for young specialists who want to deepen their understanding of investments and financial analysis, while also learning about the best global practices as presented by the CFA Institute. Since 2012, the programme has been a CFA Institute Program Partner. This status is awarded to only a limited number of programmes that cover more than 75% of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (including ethical and professional standards). In line with high CFA standards, the programme is updated annually using actual CFA textbooks and current global practices. Courses are delivered by HSE faculty and CFA Charterholders working in business. Graduates of the programme are well-equipped for careers with Russian and international banks, management firms, investment funds, rating agencies, consulting groups, and audit companies.
