Impact investing.

Example project you may work on

Your client is an asset management company. They’ve recently been asked by a high-net-worth individual if they can investigate social impact investing as part of their portfolio strategy. Working in groups, your task is to assess a portfolio approach and to make recommendations to your client with regard to their portfolio composition.

Expert teachers who care about you as an individual.

We limit class sizes so that teachers are able to give undivided support and feedback to each student. You’ll be given valuable perspective and expert input the entire time.
Jonathan Miller

Private Wealth Manager at Geach Donaldson and Associates

"Technology has radically changed our industry. The amount of information, speed of transactions, and reduction in costs means that you can no longer rely on being a middleman – you will need to add clear, quantifiable value. Students leaving this program will have a much clearer view of the scope of the Finance industry and its various opportunities. They won't be scared by the jargon, and will be equipped to delve deeper into a specific field that interests them."
