A challenging case study and practice exam enable students to put knowledge into practice.  Students will engage in role play with other students and the industry professional professor. Client case scenarios are used in preparation to work with clients.  Successfully completing the CIFC Exam meets the proficiency requirement by the provincial securities commissions for mutual fund licensing.
