CUD celebrates affiliation with CFA and CFA Scholarships

Wednesday, September 8, 2021: Since our establishment in 2006, Canadian University Dubai (CUD) has sought to make a significant impact in the realm of higher education. We have grown considerably from our beginnings, receiving global recognition for our commitment to providing students with a quality Canadian education in the heart of Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). This has enabled us to foster valuable global partnerships, contribute to the Nation’s growing knowledge economy, and leave a lasting impression on the UAE’s education landscape.

Over the years our success has attracted industry recognition from many leading international professional bodies including the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute (CFA); a global association of investment professionals responsible for generating value for core investment management professionals and engaging with the core investment management industry to advance ethics, market integrity, and professional standards of practice.

CUD is proud to be a member of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute University Affiliation Program, indicating that our Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting and Finance is closely tied to the practice of investment management. This affiliation is beneficial to students who wish to write the CFA® Program exams.

Committed to empowering students and inspiring them to pursue their academic goals and career aspirations, CUD is pleased to share that the CFA Institute is offering limited student scholarships to those enrolled in our Faculty of Management. We would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to our students who have been awarded a CFA student scholarship to date:

  • Piyush Sadhwani
  • Clarisse Banza
  • Navruzakhon Yuldasheva
  • Fatima Amiri
  • Marwa Al Rammal
  • Khadija Abbasi
  • Mohammad Al Blooshi

The Faculty of Management embraces the largest number of students at CUD. Bringing Canadian education and learning practices to the classroom, each of our programs are aimed at preparing students for the challenges they will face in this ever-changing globalized business market.

Our BBA in Accounting and Finance enables students to develop core competencies in planning, critical analysis, and financial evaluation, to prepare them for the dynamic and challenging corporate world. The degree also provides a platform for students to move forward in an accounting or finance career, positioning them well for success in professional designation training initiatives.
