Financial Analyst Academy


“ The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) is a prestigious professional designation for finance and investment analysts. The CFA Program includes a series of three exams; Levels I, II, and III .The last paper-based exams will be offered in December 2020; exams in 2021 will be computer-based for all levels. The examination is conducted twice a year every May & August for Level 2 (2021) , and May & November for Level 3 (2021). The examination is conducted four times a year in February, May, August, & November for Level 1. It is facilitated simultaneously worldwide by the CFA® INSTITUTE. “

The rapid growth in the investment and financial worlds has spurred the need to create a standard which investors and employers to rely when dealing with investment and financial professionals. The need for this standard has stimulated the growth in the number of CFA® participants since the CFA® program is known for its high standards for course content, integrity, and professionalism.

CFA® standards are recognized internationally. There are many MBA programs and business schools, but there is only one CFA® designation. Some of the organizations that employ CFA® Charter holders are investment and management companies, consulting companies, investment bankers, insurance, pension funds, banks and other financial institutions.

The demand for CFA® Charter holders is significantly high; in contrast, there are only 100 CFA® Charter holders in Indonesia. There are a number of multinational companies that require at least CFA® Level 1 as a prerequisite for employment for certain professions.

The development of the CFA® Program has been exponential – There are currently 82,000 CFA® Charter holders worldwide. In the United States, the CFA® charter has earned its prestige on the strength of its practical approach and thorough testing on the subject areas covered. Administered for the first time in 1963, the CFA® designation is awarded by the CFA® INSTITUTE, and given to the professionals that fulfill these requirements:

  • Passed three exam levels (6 hours per exam) on a consecutive basis and within a minimum of three years.
  • A minimum work experience of four years in the field of investment decision-making.
  • Adherence to the CFA® INSTITUTE Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct.

As the first university in Indonesia to have an ISO-9001 Certification, BINUS BUSINESS SCHOOL employs and implements consistent policies and quality targets. As proof of its commitment to develop the CFA® charter in Indonesia, BINUS holds the CFA® preparation program on all levels (Levels 1, 2, and 3) with over 4,000 participants attending the program since 2002.
