The Global Asset and Wealth Management MBA is a highly specialized program for financial service professionals who want to acquire the breadth and depth necessary to sustain successful careers in professional investment management. Students acquire the ability to build an investment portfolio as well as the skills to understand and serve the broader asset management needs of their future clients. The program features a one-of-a-kind, student-run investment portfolio, currently valued in excess of $10 million. This selective program admits just 20 students each year. Students in the full time program complete it in 12 months.
Students are coached and mentored in their efforts to secure internship positions relevant to their career objectives in the financial services sector. These paid internships are valuable opportunities to apply curriculum theory to real-world situations, and allow students to network within the industry, creating relationships that will aid them in future efforts to secure full-time positions in investment and portfolio management.
Students can also enjoy an optional business trip to Toronto, Canada where they visit financial organizations, meet with Business Council representatives, have opportunities to network or interview for internships, and enjoy social and cultural events.
A Business Council comprised of senior executives of Canada’s top financial services organizations provides input to the program. Council members support the program as advisors and mentors, and provide opportunities for internships and employment upon graduation.
