CFA Information Session

Do you want to be a CFA charter holder?

On Thursday, November 5, the GSOM Finance Association and Stalla held an information session led by Stalla’s instructor David M. Hetherington, CFA. This session provided important information on Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) Examinations, their requirements and about Stalla preparation programs. Mr. Hetherington provided details on the advantages of taking the CFA exams. He also gave a glimpse of the types of questions asked in the exam. In addition, he answered various questions asked by the students and talked about his 25 years of experience in the investment management field. Two lucky students won $200 worth raffles from Stalla. Overall, this session was indeed very informative particularly to those students who are planning to take the CFA exam in order to pursue a bright career in finance.
