The CFA Institute announced that they will host their next live online event: Careers in Finance Forum. The Forum is designed for undergraduates and postgraduates to learn more about the professional opportunities that the finance industry can offer, and how to pursue a successful career within it.
The CFA Institute will share information on its educational portfolio, before inviting a group of practitioners who have taken those programs to share their experiences working in the industry. Throughout the session there will be a focus on women in investment management and why it’s important to have diversity in the industry.
Thursday, March 3rd, 2016 beginning at 12:00pm EST (11am CST)

· Marquette’s Applied Investment Management program was the first undergraduate institution globally to become a CFA Program Partner. Since 2006, AIM has been recognized as an academic leader and champion of practical, relevant, and thought-provoking investment education.
· We work closely with the CFA Institute and other Program Partner universities to further our mission and vision. We embed a significant portion of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK) into our program in order to provide the AIM students with a solid grounding in practical investment education.
· Students are afforded scholarships each year to take the CFA exam at a reduced fee and a full set of CFA Level I study materials are available to our students.
· We also receive CFA Institute newsletter, access to webcasts, and are invited to national and local CFA events - such as the March 'Careers' webcast.
