The CFA qualification is undoubtedly the world’s most highly respected and challenging credential in the finance industry. The CFA charter has been considered the gold standard in investment for over 60 years for embodying the integrity, dedication and advanced skills needed to build a stronger, more accountable financial industry.
Under the “Projects of 50”, the UAE Government has initiated 13 new schemes, one of which is to develop specialised vocational skills within the Emirati workforce with internationally recognised certifications. The CFA qualification has been identified as one of the key qualifications under this initiative, and as one of the leading providers of the CFA qualification in the region, we are committed to support the nation in this vision by supporting the development of the upcoming workforce.
At PwC’s Academy, our core objective is to ensure that participants have the right knowledge, mindset and study approach, they would need to pass all three exam levels and our ability to do this is demonstrated by our exceptional pass rates.
