In January 2019, the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration- Finance Emphasis program at Bemidji State University became a CFA University Affiliation Program member. The Finance Emphasis program curriculum covers more than 70% of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK). Students learn skills towards passing the Chartered Financial Analyst ® exams.

The affiliated status allows BSU to offer 10 CFA student scholarships in 2019, which waives the one-time program enrollment fee ($450) and cuts the exam fee to $350 from the standard price of $950. The CFA student scholarships are open to all BSU students. Please contact Dr. Zhe (Cliff) Li, CFA, for more information.
