The majority of lecturers conducting classes for CFA exam preparation from its experienced panel, are CFA charterholders with industry expertise as well.

Established in 2018, Alpha is also a Gold Approved ACCA Tuition provider and Approved Employer.

"As a long-standing professional education provider that has won the trust of many Sri Lankans, we are thrilled to be recognized as the only prep provider for the CFA program in Sri Lanka with the title - Candidate Resource Partner.

This achievement is a sign of years of hard work paying off.

It would not have been possible without my team of CFA charterholder lecturers who have maintained consistency and helped students pass via not only our tuition sessions but also through additional sessions conducted in collaboration with the CFA Society Sri Lanka Candidate Council.

The CFA Program is the world's number one qualification for investment professionals, and we are confident of continued collaboration with CFA Society Sri Lanka to empower more and more candidates to become CFA charterholders.

As an ethical, dependable, and credible tuition provider with a track record, I urge students who opt for the CFA program to choose Alpha Business School for their tuition and will give the assurance of a program delivered with the highest level of quality.”
