How you learn
Carry out in-depth analysis of real-world case studies, collaborate with your global peer group, share personal experiences and debate the issues – to really put theory into practice. Leave the programme with new insights, research findings and innovations that you can apply to your role.
You are challenged and inspired through faculty-led lectures and guest speaker sessions with handpicked business leaders. Receive one-to-one coaching on your personal leadership objectives and strategies for implementing what you have learned in your role after the programme ends.
Case Study Analysis
Group work with your diverse and experienced peers adds breadth to the learning on the programme. Through a series of case study scenarios (including a top-down review of the Harvard Management Company), you consider the business impact of financial and investment theory, and the investment decisions made. This not only prompts discussion and debate but is a valuable opportunity for you to gain practical insights into performance measurement and asset allocation.
Guest Speaker Insights
A stellar line up of financial gurus includes Dr Amlan Roy, Managing Director and Head, Global Demographics and Pensions Research for the Investment Banking Division of Credit Suisse. He focuses on asset prices, growth, debt, unemployment and pensions. He uses recent industry examples to illustrate his theory of demographics as the key to understanding -patterns and -forecasting future scenarios.
Investment Fund Simulation
On the programme you’ll take part in a real-time trading simulation. Divided into groups, you’re given $1,000,000 to invest. Your group designs and implements an investment strategy to get a flavour of what it’s really like to manage an investment fund. You also gain experience of how to create a strategy which keeps everyone on board.
