The Chartered Financial Analysts Institute in the United States of America has included Doha University of Science and Technology on its list of recognized universities. Doha University of Science and Technology said in a statement today that, in this regard, the Bachelor of Business Administration in Banking and Financial Technology, and the Bachelor of Business Administration in Applied Accounting have been recognized, as they include at least 70 percent of the amount of knowledge required for the candidate of the affiliation program to the aforementioned institute. As well as its focus on the rules of ethical conduct followed within the Institute and the standards of professional conduct applied within the program. These programs better position students to obtain the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) certification, which has become one of the most respected and recognized investment credentials worldwide. She pointed out that joining the CFA Institute affiliation program confirms that the Doha University of Science and Technology curriculum is closely linked to professional practice, and is well suited to preparing students to sit for the institute’s exams. And she noted that, by participating in this program, she became eligible to receive a limited number of scholarships for students wishing to enroll in the CFA program each year. Commenting on this achievement, Dr. Salem bin Nasser Al Nuaimi, President of Doha University of Science and Technology, expressed his happiness with this affiliation, which is an acknowledgment that the university’s curricula are closely linked to professional practice and are well suited to preparing students to sit for the CFA Institute exams. He said that the university focuses on applied and experiential learning in a way that simulates workplaces, and aims to graduate students who are distinguished from their peers in their ability to innovate, lead and face challenges. It is worth noting that Doha University of Science and Technology opened last year at its campus the trading room for educational banking services and financial technology, which is the first of its kind in the region. This new addition aims to provide the university with state-of-the-art educational facilities, and to facilitate applied and experiential education for students enrolled in the College of Business programs.
