      Hi @um333 – this post addresses most of the issues around partner schools. More focused on business partner schools, but a lot of the key pros/cons are the same. Basically I would advise against selecting a university because it is a program partner – I wouldn’t attribute too much credit for that.

      Hope this helps! 😉

      I recently graduated from a part-time program with a partner school. Some of the curriculum was reflective of the CFA curriculum, but not nearly as much as you would want as a candidate. There were a few charterholders in the faculty, but it wasn’t their aim to get anyone to pursue the CFA program.

      Agree with Christine and the link is great as well. It is a nice bonus for the school to be a partner, but there doesn’t seem to be much weight with it quite yet. It could be a tool for better exposure for the program as many b-school students from other industries have no idea what the CFA program is.
