Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)
Demand for and interest in ESG has been growing, with many finance professionals struggling to make sense of new disclosure requirements and evolving investment mandates.
CFI is currently building the Environmental Social & Governance (ESG) Specialization Bundle, which will confer the title of ESG Specialist on students who will complete the bundle. This bundle aims to narrow and allow deep focus on ESG, with particular attention to specific analysis techniques and actionable skills.
The bundle is priced at $347 USD and will include a total of 7 required courses to complete this bundle and earn the credentials. The "How It Works" section includes the list of courses that will be included in the ESG bundle.
At the moment, two courses have been released as part of the ESG Specialization bundle:
- Introduction to ESG This course provides an overview of an ESG framework and how it supports a company’s overall risk management. It is perfect for any analyst who would like to better understand how a company manages risks and opportunities that shifting market & non-market conditions create in today’s world.
- ESG Fundamentals
This course aims to help you develop the critical thinking skills required to work with ESG issues in a variety of ways and in a variety of scenarios, and is perfect for any analyst who would like to better understand how a company manages risks and opportunities that shifting market & non-market conditions create in today’s world.
We plan to launch this bundle in early 2022. And while students will not earn the ESG specialization until this has been fully launched, you can pre-enroll now to get a headstart on your training!
What are the pre-requisites required in order to enroll in this bundle?
There is no prior certification required to enroll, however, this specialization bundle is recommended for students and professionals with knowledge or experience in environmental, social and governance analysis.
How will the courses be delivered?
All the lectures, study materials, and assessments are accessible online, and from anywhere in the world, that you can take wherever and whenever your time permits!
How long will it take to complete the ESG bundle?
The recommended time to complete is 30 to 35 hours, but there is no specific timeframe required to complete it. Feel free to finish it at your own pace!
If I enroll in one of the released courses now, can I enroll in the Specialization bundle once launched?
Absolutely! Once the full course catalog becomes available and you would choose to enroll, the funds spent individually on the early released courses will be credited towards the bundle.
