Study CFA® at the London School of Business & Finance
Gaining CFA® charter-holder status is your passport to an international career in investment banking. We have the experienced tutors and world-class resources you need – backed by comprehensive online support.
The CFA® qualification is the single most widely recognised credential in the field of global investment. Holding it means you can take your career global, and to new heights, at organisations such as Credit Suisse and JP Morgan.
At LSBF, we bridge the gap between investment theory and practical skills. From the very first session, you will gain knowledge that is immediately useful as a working investment professional. This is true whether you study:
CFA® charter status makes you one of over 100,000 elite investment professionals working in over 130 countries. It is a vital stepping stone to top-class positions, while Level 1 CFA® is fast becoming a standard graduate-level qualification.
You will cover key areas throughout the programme, such as ethical and professional standards, asset valuation, financial analysis, economics, corporate finance, quantitative methods and portfolio management. This prepares you for the career in investment banking you want.
The top** CFA charter holder employers internationally are:
- Bank of America Merrill Lynch
- Credit Suisse
- JP Morgan
- Morgan Stanley
- Wells Fargo

CFA® combined programmes
The CFA® qualification is a clear indication of exceptional ability. However, employers are increasingly looking to hire individuals who can demonstrate the in-depth business knowledge and thorough understanding of management gained through a master’s degree.
We have created a range of combined programme options, designed and structured by experts from the field. Combining your CFA® qualification with an MSc Finance and Investment, Global MBA or MIB degree will give you a level of expertise only a handful of other professionals can match.
Contact us to find out more about our innovative and exclusive combined programmes.

Intakes are as follows –
Level 1: February & September
Please note that we offer level 2 CFA® preparation classes online.
