Sacred Heart University’s John F. Welch College of Business and the Stamford CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) Society hosted an inaugural reception for the University’s new Investment Management Program (IMP) in December 2010. The program’s seven students were greeted by faculty members and board members of the society in the Skybox of the William H. Pitt Health and Recreation Center on campus in Fairfield.

According to Michael Dineen, a board member who is also an MBA graduate of Sacred Heart and an adjunct faculty instructor, the new undergraduate program will involve a rigorous structure of courses for students in the Finance track that will prepare them to sit for the very demanding CFA exam and for leadership positions in their field. The CFA Institute is a global, not-for-profit organization comprising the world’s largest association of investment professionals. With over 100,000 members, and regional societies around the world, it is dedicated to developing and promoting the highest educational, ethical and professional standards in the investment industry.
