CEPI History

The Certified Equity Professional Institute (CEPI) became part of the Santa Clara University (SCU) Executive Development Center in 1989.  The Executive Development  Center is part of SCU's Leavey School of Business.

An education program for those involved in equity compensation administration was proposed by Santa Clara University alumni who were professionally involved in the equity compensation field.  They saw that there was a need to create the professional body of knowledge for those involved in equity compensation.  Since 1989, thousands of individuals have benefited from the self-study certification program.  Nearly sixteen hundred people have achieved the Certified Equity Professional (CEP) designation and that number grows annually.  The CEP designation is now a widely recognized professional achievement for those involved in equity compensation administration.
