2013 CFA exam content to be outsourced?
I ran across this press release from Wiley announcing that they will be providing content for the CFA exams starting in 2013.
Continuing a five year long publishing relationship between the two companies, Wiley will provide proprietary custom publishing services and content to CFA Institute starting with the 2012 Certificate in Investment Performance Measurement (CIPM) candidate program and the 2013 Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) candidate program. Wiley’s publishing services include the composition, manufacturing, and digital publication of 18 volumes and nearly 10,0000 pages of essential educational finance content over three program levels to over 200,000 CFA candidates.
We’re delighted to take our already strong partnership with CFA Institute to this new level. Having published the CFA Investment Series for the past five years as well as the CFA Investment Perspectives we know what it takes to produce quality content that meets the high standards of CFA Institute,” said Joan O’Neil, Vice President and Group Executive Publisher Wiley Global Finance.
Does this mean that the CFA is outsourcing their content starting in 2013? Any guesses how this will impact the quality of the CFA program?
