We report survey results from academicians holding the CFA designation. Respondents indicate the CFA Program has become more important in teaching and students view course topics as more relevant if part of the CFA Program. Students are well prepared for the CFA Level I exam in valuation and investment theory, accounting and corporate finance, and quantitative methods. They are least prepared for ethical and professional standards, analysis of alternative investments, and global markets and instruments. Respondents would like to increase integration between the CFA Program and investments curriculum, but do not believe this effort will be rewarded in tenure/promotion decisions.
