Especially, a variety of benefits are offered to five outstanding KAIST students: a CFA fee waiver, Level I exam fee discounts and discounts on other exam preparation materials
Byung-tae Lee, Dean of KAIST Business School, said, “After the Financial Crisis, the CFA has become more important since CFA requires the ability to analyze comprehensive investment information such as a company’s financial condition and stock price. Under the agreement, we can help students who want to become investment professionals or key personnel necessary for working in financial institutions such as asset management and the securities.”
The CFA Institute has a partnership with approximately 143 organizations worldwide. Ashvin Vibhaker, Director of the Asia Pacific Office, also promised that he will support Korean students so that they can become global financial professionals.”
