Fall 2019 Level I Review Program
The USC/CFALA CFA® Review Program exposes candidates to more than 40 practitioners and academics who serve as instructors, coordinators, and directors of the Program. The instructors are all specialists in the part of the CFA® curriculum that they teach. They regularly address curriculum issues in their professional practices, and they bring their practical experience to our candidates. Their wide variety of experience provides candidates with diverse perspectives on all aspects of financial analyses. Besides offering a well rounded “live “ program, the ability to meet, learn from, and network with so many high-level professionals may be one of the most important aspects of the Program.
