Eligibility for CFA® Program Expanded to Juniors

New Way for Undergraduates to Springboard into Careers in Financial Services

Charlottesville, Virginia – 11/16/2022: As university students look to differentiate themselves in the hunt for a financial services internship or job, CFA Institute – the global association for investment professionals – has extended CFA Program candidate eligibility to include students with two years remaining in their undergraduate studies (typically junior year). This provides students who enroll in Level I with a clear signal to employers that they are committed to their career goals as they compete for their first role in financial services.

The CFA charter sets the standard as the most highly respected designation in the investment profession globally. Through the CFA Program, students gain knowledge developed by the world’s leading association of investment professionals. Enrolling in the CFA Program will offer candidates expanded opportunities for career advancement.

The change is effective immediately and applies to the May 2023 exam window for those atypical candidates who could graduate in or shortly before April 2024. Requirements to register for the Level II exam (students must have graduated before the exam date) and to ultimately earn the CFA charter remain unchanged, including the work-experience requirement.

2Market Information Inc. launches StudentVentureTM – the first and only directory and database of student startup competitions

ATLANTA, GA — Entrepreneurship among university students is booming like never before, and nowhere is that more evident than in the number of startup and business plan competitions taking place every single day on campuses across the country.

For entrepreneurship program managers and others involved in student-focused innovation at U.S. universities, keeping up is virtually impossible. Yet it’s critical for university entrepreneurship programs and their students to have this information available – to search for, plan for, and to enter the competitions that are right for their startups and inventions.

2Market Information Inc., which operates the Tech Transfer Central web portal (www.techtransfercentral.com) and publishes the field’s leading publication Technology Transfer Tactics, has spent the last year developing the StudentVentureTM database and directory of business plan and startup competitions (https://studentventure.online/), bringing hundreds of events together in one convenient, affordable resource.

“Rather than spending hours searching and compiling the available student pitching events yourself, we’ve done all the work for you – and you get not only complete online access to the database, but you also have the option to share the directory with all your student entrepreneurs under our site license subscription option,” says 2Market Information CEO and Publisher David Schwartz.

StudentVentureTM is a big time-saver for entrepreneurship offices, Schwartz adds, and it’s a way to easily and significantly expand support for entrepreneurial students.  “It’s a huge value-add for any entrepreneurship program, allowing your students to quickly and easily compare available competitions and plot their next move,” he says.

An individual subscription to StudentVentureTM costs just $249 for a full year of access, with the option for a site license that’s priced on a sliding scale based on the number of students included, with the lower price tiers allowing smaller schools to pay less.

Subscribers gain instant access to a comprehensive, searchable database of student competitions across the country, with filters that allow you to search and sort by event date, application deadline, state or region, keyword, and even by prize amount offered. Each competition entry includes a brief description, application deadlines, prize amounts, and a link to the competition website. The site is continually updated and refreshed.

Subscribers can also submit updates to their own competitions or add new events as they are scheduled, increasing visibility among potential applicants across the country.

Along with the directory listings, StudentVentureTM includes a valuable collection of how-to distance learning programs and articles that can be shared with student entrepreneurs, along with a resources page containing dozens of links to additional entrepreneurship education.

“The StudentVentureTM directory and database is a much-needed tool for busy entrepreneurship programs, which spend many hours of staff time searching for, compiling, and distributing available competitions to their students. This frees them up to focus on their own programs, while empowering their students to find the right launching pads for their innovative startups,” Schwartz says.

Complete information on StudentVentureTM is available at https://studentventure.online/.

Study reveals stark disparity in students’ opinions and understanding of sustainability and their scepticism towards government and business promises

• Students are changing the way they live due to concerns about the climate crisis – research reveals top four behavior changes students are making
• 61% of students report climate change is having a significant impact on their lives today
• More than 72% of students believe the promises made at COP won’t be kept

DENVER, October 26, 2022: With COP27 on the horizon, recent research has revealed the need for continuing education on key issues regarding sustainability, and a deep skepticism from students about government and businesses commitment to addressing climate issues.

The study found 61% of students reported climate change is having a significant or very significant impact on their life today. Additionally, two thirds (66%) of US students surveyed recognized the importance of Carbon Literacy, and many are changing the way they live their lives to help address the climate crisis.

But despite students and younger professionals being a driving, vocal force in addressing climate change, the study finds there is still a need for continuing climate change education.  Specifically:

• Better definition of terms – While we use terms like carbon sink and carbon footprint, there is lack of agreement on the definition. For example, 40% of students don’t know what carbon footprint is.
• The debate over nuclear energy as a clean energy source continues, with 25% of students identifying nuclear as a clean energy source. Men are almost twice as likely to identify nuclear power as clean than women.
• Social media is enormous power in climate information and misinformation. The study found the three most popular channels for students to get news on the environment and sustainability are YouTube (53%), TikTok (49%), and Instagram (41%). This reinforces the importance of fighting climate misinformation on these platforms.

The research was commissioned by Yugo – the first global student housing operator created to enhance students’ experiences throughout and beyond university life – as part of a global research project studying over 6,000 students across the UK, Ireland, Germany, Spain, Australia and the US. More than 1,000 students were polled in the US.

The study has shown just how important long term education programs are for creating further awareness of the sustainability challenges we face and how behavior change can tackle them – something that Yugo’s pillar – YugoEco has been developed to support.

Encouragingly, students are playing their part in helping to combat the world’s environmental challenges. The top four behavior changes cited due to concerns about the environment were:

1. Buying fewer disposable products (38%)
2. Actively trying to reduce energy use (35%) although women are 10% more likely to turn off lights than men.
3. Travelling using more environmentally friendly means (30%), with 12% more men than women saying they travel green
4. Deliberately purchasing from sustainable companies (25%)

Students are expressing their concerns in a number of ways, with 10% of students signing petitions and more than 890,000 US students taking part in a demonstration. Women are twice as likely as men to express their concerns via petition.

Students are skeptical and demand action

With COP27 just weeks away, students are very skeptical about government and business driving progress against climate change. More than 72% of students believe the promises made at the recent COP26 won’t be kept. The two most popular reasons why were because politicians lie (34%), and companies put profit over the environment (31%). Interestingly, women are 8% more likely to be skeptical of companies which means they will need to do more to convince them that efforts are not greenwashing.

Students say companies have a duty to address climate crisis. Encouragingly, management students are slightly more likely than their peers to believe this (66% vs 63%).

When it comes to making a difference, Apple wins again, with 22% of students indicating it is most active in fighting the climate crisis. But students maintain their skepticism, with 28% of students believing no company is doing enough.

Helen Strachan, Sustainability Specialist at Yugo, said: “There is often a misunderstood assumption that students have a homogeneous view on the environment and sustainability, but this research presents a far more complex picture. There are huge differences of opinion and knowledge when it comes to some of the biggest challenges the planet is facing, which is understandable given the vast amount of information out there on what is one of the most multifaceted issues of our time.  This study shows the need for further understanding of these critical issues.

“It’s uplifting to know that students are changing their behavior. As companies operating in the field of higher education, we have a duty to support students to live the most sustainable lives they can, which is why sustainability plays a key role in our holistic living program.”

As part of its commitment to sustainability, Yugo has partnered with The Carbon Literacy Project and is officially a Bronze Level Carbon Literate Organization.   The next objective is to reach Silver Level Carbon Literate Organization status to ensure more employees have the knowledge needed to reduce their own and Yugo’s carbon emissions.

Emma Richards, Head of Project Development, The Carbon Literacy Project said: “Carbon Literacy is an essential skill, vital to every workplace, community, and place of study. This research only demonstrates this further. Carbon Literacy is the foundational knowledge – it gives everyone the base level of understanding on climate change needed to drive positive action. However, Carbon Literacy is only the first step. The actions taken and pledged by learners as part of their Carbon Literacy have an immediate impact within their organization, however it is the maintenance of these and further actions, supported by Carbon Literate organizational culture, that reaps the greatest rewards for both participants and their organizations.  By becoming a Bronze accredited Carbon Literate Organization, Yugo has demonstrated its commitment to driving genuine low carbon action in their own organization and among the students they serve.”

Yugo’s unique approach

Yugo also empowers its students to grow personally through collaborative events and projects under the Live Your Best Life program – a holistic living experience developed from the Yugo research of thousands of students worldwide. This program supports students through three pillars based on sustainability – YugoEco, education – YuPro, personal and professional development – YuGrow, to deliver on their needs and expectations.

• YugoEco sees Yugo coming together with students to create better living spaces and a better planet through several initiatives. These include low energy usage programs on the importance of living more sustainable lives for students, and global partnerships with like-minded businesses for events, education and student experiences.
• YuPro is all about empowering young people beyond higher education and to help prepare them for their careers and their professional development. Yugo is also offering training sessions in areas such as career advice, real life experience, coaching and empowerment.
• YuGrow encourages Yugo students to shine by supporting their personal journey through events and activities in Yugo spaces, including student podcasts, diversity events and global student networking opportunities. Yugo has pledged to provide students with the most sustainably sourced chair and mattress – these were key findings from Yugo research as critical to their life to support both their physical environment and their emotional needs.

Back to School Marks Return to In-Person Study Abroad Programs

Majority of higher education institutions report an increase in study abroad participation compared to previous year

Experiential learning and educational travel provide students with a global passport for life

NEW YORK, September 20, 2022 – As students return to classrooms this fall, U.S. colleges and universities are seeing in-person study abroad programs rebound. A survey by the International Educational Exchange reports 83% of institutions noted an increase in study abroad participation for the 2022 academic year compared to the previous year.

With the reopening of international travel, the pent-up demand for education travel is skyrocketing. WorldStrides, the global leader in study abroad, educational travel and experiential learning, is seeing this momentum for in-person learning and travel across its wide range of accredited study abroad experiences. Through its faculty-led programs, semester study abroad, summer study abroad, and even college prep programs for high-schoolers, WorldStrides enables students to view themselves, and the world, in new ways that will provide them with the life skills needed for future success.

“Students are eager to get back out into the world and experience for themselves the life-changing encounters that are inevitable during a study abroad program,” said Sara Easler, Director, International Programs & Study Abroad, University of Tennessee, Knoxville Haslam College of Business. “More than ever, we are seeing students gravitate toward real connection with new places and people after being deprived of these experiences. Given geopolitical events of the last few years, it is critically important for students to have their ideas of their world and of their own culture challenged so they can develop a global perspective.”

Back-to-school season dominated by the opportunity to study abroad

Most U.S. higher education institutions surveyed by the International Education Exchange reported a return to in-person teaching and learning. Experiential learning provides students with a global passport for life, giving them the opportunity to gain perspective into how people of different backgrounds see the world. Founded by teachers, WorldStrides has more than 50 years of experience creating life-changing moments for students and teachers through immersive education experiences of all shapes and sizes.

“WorldStrides created a rich, impactful one-week experience for 400 Boston University students who had missed their abroad opportunities in the previous two years because of the pandemic,” said Natalie McKnight, Dean, College of General Studies, Boston University.  “Our group was large, but WorldStrides managed to coordinate our activities and meals so that the numbers were never overwhelming, and everyone—students, faculty and staff (myself included!) had a really wonderful experience.”

Europe, Costa Rica among top destinations

As educational travel returns, popular destinations for WorldStrides students include its programs traveling to France, Greece, Italy, Spain, London, Prague as well as Costa Rica. WorldStrides aims to provide a wide range of affordable education abroad opportunities with a commitment to exceptional support for all participants and their institutions.

“There is a resounding eagerness to emerge from the pandemic and explore the world, and we’re seeing this momentum in our programs this year,” said Bob Gogel, President and CEO, WorldStrides. “Seeing and experiencing the world as we live it in 3-D can truly be a life-changing moment for a student. Our programs encourage participants to explore the world beyond their comfort zone, benefit from the effects of immersive learning and become global citizens.”

In addition to Boston University and the University of Tennessee Knoxville, WorldStrides offers study abroad experiences with a number of university partners, including New York University, London School of Economics, University of Georgia, and University of Colorado Boulder, among others.

“The impact of studying abroad on students is powerful: in evaluation comments, students regularly say that their visits to museums, galleries and plays have helped them better remember the subjects they are studying and apply what they’ve learned beyond the classroom,” said Boston University’s McKnight.  “Students often comment that their study abroad experience was completely transformative and has given them a whole new perspective on themselves and the world around them.  ‘I will never be the same,’ wrote one student this year, ‘and for that, I am grateful.’”

“Our students are returning to campus energized and full of enthusiasm for what they’ve gained and learned through study abroad,” said UT Knoxville’s Easler. “It’s evident in their interactions in our classrooms, with other students, and in their passionate advocacy to peers to go experience a study abroad program for themselves.”

Bring your phone, and only pay for the data you need with plans starting at $15 a month. Need more data? Switching between plans is simple and you can even change your plan in the middle of your billing cycle. It’s easy with no contract and online activation.

You also may qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which provides a monthly credit of up to $30 toward your Internet bill. To qualify, you must meet the program’s eligibility criteria which can be found here. You may qualify if the entire household income is at or below 200% of the federal poverty level (for example, $55,500/year for a family of four, $27,180/year for an individual) or if you receive assistance through certain government programs, including if you received a Federal Pell Grant during the current school year.
