ORONO — Two University of Maine Maine Business School students, Violeta Zaneva and Anh Do, have passed the Level I examination of the Chartered Financial Analyst program, considered the “gold standard among investment analysis designations” by The Economist magazine.
They took the exam in Boston in December. The pass rate for the exam was only 39 percent. Nearly 150,000 candidates from 172 countries are enrolled in the program, according to John Mahon, professor and dean of the College of Business, Public Policy and Health, and Robert Strong, University Foundation Professor of Investment Education, who offered congratulations to the students on their accomplishment.
“These students reflect upon the faculty and the program as a whole,” Mahon says.
Zaneva is a business administration major who graduated in December and Do is a fourth-year business administration major. Both have been active in SPIFFY, the student-managed investment club at UMaine.
