SIE Adoption



Why Adopt SIE Curricula in 2019?

Last October, FINRA introduced a new exam available to anyone interested in a career in securities, including college students. It's is the first time FINRA has made a securities exam available to the public, without requiring sponsorship from a financial firm.

The Securities Industry Essentials (SIE) exam is an introductory-level exam that assesses a candidate's knowledge of basic securities industry information, including: fundamental concepts to the industry; types of products and their risks; the structure of the securities industry markets; regulatory agencies and their functions; and prohibited practices.


Why You Should Have SIE in Your Curriculum

Universities are rapidly incorporating the SIE exam into their undergraduate curricula because it gives their students a competitive edge and a head start: students who pass the SIE exam have a stronger résumé that demonstrates advanced knowledge of the securities industry; they're also one step closer to passing a securities licensing exam, like the Series 6 or Series 7.

Integrating SIE exam prep into your curriculum is becoming a key differentiator for leading business schools and financial education programs. It's also a new revenue stream.

Dalton Education, in partnership with Pass Perfect, is proud to now offer a SIE University Program that can help your school excel in the new educational landscape. More than a million people have already passed FINRA exams with the help of our unique adaptive learning technology. We provide everything you need to launch a successful SIE course, including curricula, faculty education, and administrative reporting.
