what we do
An incredible experience for university students, the annual Research Challenge, a global competition, is a major event that CFA Society Jordan organises. With an average of 20-25 participants each year, we are proud to have impacted more than 100 university students in Jordan since it started 5 years ago.
We facilitate annual mock exams for registered candidates to have the chance to practise ahead of the actual exam. This has received very positive feedback from participants and as a consequence, the exam pass rates in Jordan have seen a remarkable improvement.
With participation rates exceeding on average 100 people per event, CFA Society Jordan's various events offer excellent networking opportunities to meet and interact with finance and investment professionals in Jordan.
The voluntary Continuing Education (CE) Program is a framework for our members to identify educational activities that contribute to ongoing professional development. It is a program that is focused on trust. Learn more about this program, why it's relevant to you or start designing your program now.
Every year we offer scholarships to exam candidates. The scholarships are divided into two categories: Access Scholarships and Awareness Scholarships. We encourage all registered candidates to apply. Check this out to find out more about eligibility, applications and rules etc.
Considered by many one of our flagship events, several times a year we organise interesting Knowledge Seminars. Topics range from Islamic Finance, Macroeconomics, ESG and SRI, Derviatives and Fintech, but also soft skills such as improving your memory.
