CFA Program Partnership
On 12 July 2007, Nanyang Business School was officially recognised as a CFA Program Partner and became one of six CFA Program Partner Institutions in the Asia-Pacific region. The other five Asia-Pacific institutions were Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, La Trobe University (Melbourne, Australia), Macquarie University (Sydney, Australia), National University of Singapore, and University of Otago (Dunedin, New Zealand).

CFA Institute is a highly-regarded global professional body that awards the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) credential. To ensure the industry relevance of our finance graduates, NBS had always modeled our Banking & Finance specialization on the CFA curriculum. In a natural step toward achieving an even stronger integration with the CFA curriculum, we incorporated the CFA Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct curriculum into our specialization in Academic Year 2007/08. Henceforth, all NBS students who specialize in Banking & Finance would have to pass a CFA Ethics written test. This enhances the NBS finance education and enables us to meet the industry's demand for financial specialists with both strong quantitative skills and exemplary ethical qualities.
