Four recent Niagara University graduates – David Lemieux-Sarassin, Jack LePage, Robert Martini and Daniel Schasel – have been notified that they successfully passed the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Level 1 Exam that was taken in December 2012.

According to the CFA Institute website, only 37 percent of the December 2012 participants passed this rigorous exam, which is administered to almost 49,000 people in 38 different countries. To complete the program, there are three levels of exams that must be passed, each of which takes over 300 hours of studying. We wish luck to our graduates and acknowledge their hard work and dedication.

The College of Business Administration, and Niagara University as a whole, also has another cause to celebrate: NU has been added to the CFA Institute’s Recognition Program for its finance curriculum, an honor that places the university in good company.

As stated by Ed Hutton, CFA, assistant professor and director of the Financial Services Lab, “Because there are over 200,000 members of CFA Institute worldwide, we can certainly say that we are achieving our goal of becoming ‘regionally prominent and internationally recognized!’”
