How is your Financial Management program accredited?

As part of Boston University, Metropolitan College’s Financial Management programs are accredited by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business and the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE).

I want to become a CFA charter holder. How is the Financial Management program preparing me for the exams?

We are a participant in the CFA Institute University Affiliation Program. The Financial Management graduate degree curriculum embeds a significant portion of the CFA® Program Candidate Body of Knowledge™ (CBOK) and covers the Standards of Practice Handbook, offering excellent preparation for the internationally recognized Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA) Program exams.

Can I obtain a scholarship for the CFA exam if I am a student in the Financial Management program?

Yes! The Financial Management program is affiliated with the CFA institute, and we are therefore able to grant a number of scholarships for the CFA exams to enrolled students.

I already have a professional charter or certification. Can I waive some of my courses? 

Yes, you can. If you are a CFA charter holder, you can waive two courses, MET AD 731 and one elective. If you are a CPA, you can waive MET AD 630. If you are a CFP, you may waive one elective.
