CHARTERED FINANCIAL ANALYST® Program
The CFA® Program is a globally recognized, graduate-level curriculum that provides students with a strong foundation of the real-world investment analysis and portfolio management skills and practical knowledge students will need in today’s investment industry. It also emphasizes the highest ethical and professional standards.
The taught programmes offered by Malvern International Academy, equip students with the knowledge and skills for them to succeed in the CFA® examinations as quickly as possible. The teaching team’s record stretched from1998. Having a wealth of teaching experience helps as the teaching pedagogy has been improved to address the rigorous requirements for passing the exams. As the pioneer in offering taught classes in Malaysia, we have tutored more than 3,153 CFA® candidates over the past 18 years.
Moreover, Malvern is recognised as the education provider for various organisations such as Maybank Group, Bank Negara Malaysia, Permodalan Nasional Berhad, and Securities Commission of Malaysia for the BDREF (Bumiputera Dealer Representatives Education Fund) programme.
We are proud that we have produced CFA® candidates who have passed all the subjects with scores exceeding the capped passing mark. In our term, these students have obtained the difficult achievements of Full Distinctions. Unsure what ‘capped passing mark’ means.
