Academic Partner Program

The Chartered Market Technicians Association (CMT Association) has been working for over forty years to advance the discipline of technical analysis through education and application of the highest professional standards. In an effort to advance our mission the CMT Association has established an Academic Partner Program to promote technical analysis education at colleges and universities worldwide.

The program is available to academic institutions that provide accredited graduate or undergraduate finance degrees and include courses focused on technical analysis. There are no fees associated with becoming an Academic Partner.

The Chartered Market Technician® (CMT) credential is the preeminent, global designation for practitioners of technical analysis. The designation is awarded to those who demonstrate mastery of a core body of knowledge of investment risk in portfolio management settings.

Joining the CMT Association Academic Partner Program indicates your institution maintains the highest standards of academic rigor and professional practice and signals a commitment to your students’ career readiness and applied learning.
