Designed in partnership with Morgan International, a leader in professional education and training services in the region; and Stalla a pioneer provider of CFA exam preparation courses, the QFBA CFA preparation courses will be available from the 19th June 2011.

Greg Cooper, Open Portfolio Director at the QFBA, explained: “For anyone interested in pursuing a career in a finance function, CFA exam passes are the most universally recognised and respected qualifications you can have.  We are extremely pleased that Qatari professionals and business people working in Doha will now have the opportunity to take these courses at the QFBA.”

The QFBA CFA Level 1 course is a 20-week, 2-days-per-week programme which focuses on expanding candidate’s knowledge of ethical and professional standards; investment tools; asset valuation as well as portfolio management.  The training prepares them to take the CFA level 1 exam.

“We held an information session on 15th May 2011 at the QFBA learning facilities which was attended by a large number of finance professionals in Qatar.  The introduction to the exams explained the benefits of obtaining the CFA charter, emphasizing the course as the most respected and valued credential in the global finance community.  The response to this session was excellent so we are confident that this is the type of training which will help the continued growth and development of the Qatar financial services sector.” added Mr.Cooper.
