CFA Institute Confirms Partner Status of Two HSE Programmes

CFA Institute, an international organization that unites tens of thousands financial experts from all over the world, has confirmed the partner status of the Financial Analyst Master’s programme and the Investment Management MBA programme, both of which are taught at the HSE Banking Institute.

Each year, CFA Institute evaluates the quality of partner educational programmes and verifies that they comply with its criteria. It also ensures that the institutions, staff, and students adhere to ethical professional standards. The curricula of the two CFA Institute’s partner programmes taught at the HSE Banking Institute include compulsory courses on ethical and professional standards. Most subjects at the partner programmes are taught by professionals who hold a Chartered Financial Analyst degree.

In addition, CFA Institute monitors the materials that are used in studies. The materials used at the Banking Institute include textbooks published by CFA Institute, which are renewed annually. They cover all three levels of preparation for the CFA Certificate exam and include periodicals (e.g., Financial Analysts Journal), and materials published on the CFA Institute website.

Another quality criterion for the educational programmes concerns cooperation between the HSE Banking Institute and CFA Institute and CFA Association Russia. Representatives of the Banking Institute regularly take part in the annual CFA Programme Partner Conference.

Each year the Banking Institute holds a university-wide competition to create a student team to represent HSE in the CFA Institute Research Challenge, an annual international competition organized by CFA Institute. Last year, the HSE team took first place in the regional stage of the competition.
