    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.

    Technology has radically changed our industry. The amount of information, speed of transactions, and reduction 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 scrope of the Finance industry. They won't be scared by the jargon, and – especially as they go through their internship – they'll be equipped to delve deeper into a specific field that interests them.

    The Investment Finance course was such an engaging and challenging experience, thanks to our amazing teacher. Be prepared to have so much fun and learn so much at the same time.

    In Investment Finance, I’m learning valuable skills for a career in finance-related fields without just being thrown in the deep end and trying to figure it out for myself at a conventional internship or even a job. This is a life-changing experience which is a great start to building your career. The classroom experience has taught me necessary skills for my career goals.

    Courtney Schaf

    After the intensive finance course, I felt well-equipped to do evaluations and build models in the classroom, and applying them in looking at the scalability of companies. I’m so grateful of my experience working with a South African company in its initial stages.

    Our teacher made the class a fun environment to learn finance and made the weeks a worthwhile experience. I really enjoyed the fund project, and found it a great way to apply what we had learned.
