Course admission requirements
The course is intended for people who work in the field of financial analysis, asset management or investment counselling, and who have the following academic and/or vocational background:
"KV-Lehrabschluss" (Swiss qualification in trade and commerce, commercial certificate) or "Maturität" (Swiss certificate of completion of secondary education qualifying for university entrance, A-Levels) and 5 years of vocational experience; or
Bachelor of Sciences and 3 years of professional experience
University degree (license or equivalent diploma) and 2 years of vocational experience.
The years of practical experience must have been reached by the time that candidates sit the final examination, not at the beginning of the course.
In our experience candidates with the following qualifications do not have a sufficient grounding in mathematics. For this reason it is urgently recommended that they attend the induction course in mathematics:
- "KV-Lehrabschluss" (Swiss qualification in trade and commerce, commercial certificate) or a vocational diploma; or
- Swiss "Matura" (school-leaving certificate qualifying for university entrance, A-Levels) other than "type C"; or
- university degree where mathematics has not been among the subjects studied.
