Tiffin University to Participate in CFA Institute’s University Affiliation Program®

Tiffin University has been approved to participate in the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) Institute’s University Affiliation Program (UAP®). This approval means that TU finance students will now be able to apply for financial aid scholarships on behalf of the CFA®, and the University will have access to CFA®-sanctioned coursework and exams for teaching purposes.

“This is sure to be a highly beneficial partnership,” says Dr. Peter J. Holbrook, Provost and Chief Academic Officer. “Not only will this directly impact our finance students, but earning the privilege to utilize these top-tier teaching materials will only further strengthen the already-reputable curriculum. Furthermore, being able to advertise TU as a CFA®-endorsed institution will surely promote an increase in enrollment for the major.”

Acceptance into the UAP® signifies that Tiffin University’s finance curriculum utilizes at least 70 percent of the CFA® Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK), and that the University’s finance classes place an emphasis on the CFA Institute’s® Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct. Collegiate programs meeting these standards have a history of producing students equipped to obtain the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) Charter.

The CFA Institute® is the global association of investment professionals that sets the standard for professional excellence and credentials. The organization is a champion of ethical behavior in investment markets and a respected source of knowledge in the global financial community. Its aim is to create an environment where investors’ interests come first, markets function at their best and economies grow. There are more than 160,000 CFA® charter holders worldwide in 164 markets. The CFA Institute® has nine offices worldwide and there are 161 local societies.
