Marquette’s AIM program is the oldest undergraduate CFA Program Partner

Since 2006, Marquette’s AIM program has been a partner with the CFA Institute. The AIM program utilizes CFA texts, web content, and speakers to help prepare students to take and pass the CFA exam following graduation.

The CFA Institute partners with globally diverse, high profile institutions who cover a significant portion of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge™ and who embrace the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct in their degree programs. Since 2006, Marquette’s AIM program has been a CFA Program Partner.

Recognition as a CFA Program Partner provides a signal to potential students, current students, and the marketplace that the university curriculum is closely tied to professional practice and is well suited to preparing students to sit for the CFA exams.

Partnerships are considered on a case-by-case basis. While there are minimum requirements to submit an application to become a partner, meeting these requirements is not sufficient to achieve a partnership. CFA Institute reserves the right, at its sole discretion, not to approve any application for status as a partner.
