CFA® level I training program

Executive Education HEC Montréal is proud of its partnership with

The program will only be available in English.

This program is intended to provide participants with the requisite knowledge to sit for the level I examination of the CFA Institute’s Chartered Financial Analysts®’ program. At the end of the program, participants will have the opportunity to write a three-hour practice exam at no extra charge.

The program will be held over 8 weeks (two sessions per week) in autumn 2018 and 16 weeks (one session per week) in winter 2019. Those candidates enrolled for the level I examination of December 2018 or June 2019 will be able to start studying earlier and more importantly, they will be able to study on a regular basis, supported by a team of experienced trainers. Instructors will present and explain the more complex concepts of the study curriculum as outlined by the CFA Institute in the study guide and highlight the common pitfalls to avoid thus providing participants the best possible chance of successfully passing the CFA® level I examination. A significant portion of each session will be dedicated to practice questions. The course is based on Wiley material. Participants will have the opportunity to write a practice exam at the end of CFA® level I and level II programs.
