How long have you been in business?
Dr. Carl Schweser founded the Schweser Study Program in 1990 for the 1991 CFA® Exam, while he was a professor in the college of business at the University of Iowa. Prior to that time, Carl had taught in CFA® programs in North America for a number of years.
Dr. Andrew Temte has been with the company since its inception in 1990. When Schweser Study Program was acquired by Kaplan, Inc., in 2000 (Kaplan's parent company is The Washington Post Company), Dr. Temte became its President. Kaplan Schweser now enjoys the full backing of a trusted name in education and training with Kaplan's resources at its disposal. The parent company, The Washington Post Company, is publicly traded on the NYSE and has over $2 billion in annual revenues. Even though we are now a part of a bigger organization, we are committed to our tradition of fulfilling the candidates' needs, and maintaining, as well as enhancing, the level and quality of our service to our customers.
Who are the people behind Kaplan Schweser?
Currently, we have 10 full-time faculty members who are CFA charterholders and over 15 faculty members who hold a CPA, CAIA, FRM, and/or CFP® designation. These full-time faculty members, along with adjunct faculty, conduct seminars and assist us in the preparation of training and study materials. In addition to our full-time faculty, virtually all our adjunct faculty have designations in the field in which they are teaching. Because they have first-hand knowledge of the exams, our people understand what it takes to prepare for the CFA, CPA, CAIA, FRM, and CFP® exams and how to pass them. They have extensive experience teaching in these programs as well as in universities across the US and Canada. You can view our faculty profiles online.
