You will execute trades, convince associates of your investment proposal and learn the merits of sound asset diversification. With this exceptional experience, TCU students have gone on to successful Wall Street careers.

 

Chartered Financial Analyst

The CFA is the most recognized designation for investment professionals. Like lawyers taking the bar or accountants taking the CPA exam, financiers who want to rise to the highest levels focus on the CFA exams.
