Okanagan College’s Bachelor of Business Administration program is now an affiliate of the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute. “Okanagan College’s Business program has a long history of producing investment management leaders in the region, many of whom have gone on to achieve their CFA designation. University affiliate status is a strong signal to students and employers of the quality of the curriculum,” said CFA Institute CEO Paul Smith. The Vernon Morning Star reports that the designation will also bring nine scholarships for students who participate in the CFA exam.
