Matt Klein, iX Alum

Equity Research Associate at Franklin Templeton

"Last summer I had a great experience working in corporate finance, and this summer I got to see a completely different side of the industry. Our teacher focused primarily on start up evaluation and taught us how to build efficient financial models to better assess investment risk. Today, I am working with a team of other iX students on a startup venture of our own. The startup has given me an environment to hone the skills I learned in the classroom."

Real world application.

This problem-based learning is a hands-on approach to learning centred on the investigation of complex, real-world problems, and their applying solutions with the direct use of theory learned in class.

Industry and company needs change fast. This means that the class projects vary over time, and from course to course. Specific class projects cannot be guaranteed, so during the first week of the program, you will be briefed on the project identified for the course and what the outcomes are.

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.
