CFA Programme inspires hope

THE Investment Professionals of Zimbabwe (IPAZ) has encouraged Finance students at National University of Science and Technology (NUST) to enrol on a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) programme at public lecture held at the Delta theatre recently.

A member of IPAZ, Ranga Makwata, advised students to enrol for the CFA programme which will widen their scope globally. According to Makwata, the CFA programme is available only for degree holders.

“The CFA programme helps you gain skills which are at a global scale and enriches the degree you have attained to be competitive worldwide” Makwata said.

Makwata further explained that the programme is examined in three levels and one has to pass all the levels to attain a CFA charter, after also conducting four years of work experience.

According to Makwata, fourth year students can begin the enrolment as they will learn similar things which they are currently studying. He encouraged students in part four to enrol and begin their Level One whilst they are in their final year.

The CFA programme provides skills for students to be flexible in investment management which cuts across financial and economic areas.

The programmes fees are pegged at US$2,400 and averages US$800 per stage.

Students at the public lecture were advised to consult one of IPAZ member, Mr. Simba, who would mentor them and prepare them in registering for CFA programmes.
