The Faculty of Economics received, as a fourth one in the Czech Republic, a certificate from CFA Institute. The Institute focuses on ethical behaviour in the financial market and it tries to make the environment where investors’ interests are at the first place. Students from the Department of Finance could get a scholarship to get the certificate.
