ABOUT THE EVENT
CFA Society Poland University Meeting 
A Look Inside the Future of a Finance Profession

The CFA Society Poland University Meeting is one of the key events in the CFA Society Poland calendar, as such initiatives, aimed at reinforcing the relationship between universities and the professional community, perfectly reflects the mission of CFA Institute and CFA Society Poland. By creating a group of experts who boast a wide range of expertise in the field of finance, we strive not only to promote the international Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) certification awarded by the CFA Institute but also to organize valuable thematic events aimed at improving the quality of services within the financial sector.

In this year's meeting, with the support of a number of experts representing both academics, practitioners and the CFA community, we will focus on boosting the relationship between the CFA Society and the world of academia.

The September meeting at the Warszawianka Hotel in Jachranka is designed to integrate Poland's leading academic centers and is held for the third time. The first event, called the CFA Society Poland Universit Summit, was held on October 27, 2017, as an all-day conference. The inclusion of this year's meeting in the agenda of the CFA Society Poland Annual Conference 2022 will allow representatives of Polish and Baltic universities to join a group of nearly 250 professionals.
