Formal and Informal Study Groups

CFRM students are encouraged to develop ad-hoc study groups on campus to collaborate on teaching and learning, as well as preparation for exams in the program and professional certifications.  Students studying for CFA, FRM, SOA, or other professional certification exams may especially benefit from collaboration, and space is available in Lewis Hall for this purpose.
