The University of Stirling MSc Investment Analysis has a first-class repute and is the UK’s longest-created postgraduate program in the field. It is also one of very few master’s degree programs in the United Kingdom to be recognized under the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute University Affiliation Program. This recognizes that the program covers a minimum of 70 percent of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge and places importance on the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. The program positions scholars well to acquire the Chartered Financial Analyst designation, which has become the most valued and recognized investment qualification in the world.
Their Investment Analysis candidates have successfully contested in the esteemed CFA Institute Research Challenge, gaining a position in the UK Final in ten out of twelve years.
