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
Take advantage of engaging speaker sessions and access the latest in financial thinking. A stellar line up of financial influencers include Jean-Francois Lambert, Prasad Ramani, Dipankar Shewaram and Michael Berns who speak on a range of topics from Commodities, Behavioural Finance Biases to AI. Explore expert biases in financial decision making and identify your own reasoning in our Behavioural Finance exercise. Gain a practical understanding of cutting edge investment management trends and deepen your knowledge of innovative financial themes such as Robo-advisors, RegTech and FinTech.
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.
