First Module of International Program for Asset and Wealth Management Professionals successfully delivered

Fri, 17 Jun 2011 13:03:48 GMT

The Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Lausanne (HEC Lausanne), the Swiss Finance Institute and the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University are proud to announce the launch of our new global executive MBA program in asset and wealth management.

The Asset and Wealth Management Executive MBA (AWEMBA) is designed primarily for bank managers, senior relationship managers and investment professionals from around the world, active in private banking or in institutional asset management. For these the program aims to establish itself as the educational gold standard, designating the highest qualification achievable in the field.

The hallmark of the future successful executive in the financial industry is the ability to combine financial know how and business management. The Asset and Wealth Management Executive MBA integrates both disciplines. This is of key importance, because misunderstanding modern finance concepts presents a significant danger, while not being able to implement one's insights make them worthless. This is why the program engages some of the world's foremost academics to teach the finance concepts, while leading practitioners discuss the associated practical challenges, and all this is then put into a management perspective.

The program involves six two-week classroom modules spread over 20 months, based alternately at the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and at HEC Lausanne, Switzerland. Graduates of this new program will receive Executive MBA Degrees from the Tepper School of Business and from HEC Lausanne. The inaugural class begins in May 2011, and is expected to attract about 30 investment professionals from around the world. Further information on the program can be found on www.awemba.org.
