This innovative dual degree program gives participants access to a range of top-flight academics and experienced practitioners. The modular structure of this program, where classroom units last for two weeks, allows professionals from around the world to participate without taking long periods away from work. This international mix of talented executives also builds a global network of contacts – invaluable assets in today’s interconnected world.

Involving 12 weeks of classroom instruction spread over 20 months and two continents, participants will explore four interdisciplinary business themes. Speaker sessions, interactive lectures, case studies, group discussions and project work will challenge you and give you a more dynamic and complex understanding of the business of investment management. While classroom modules are two weeks long, some of the most important work in the program takes place between modules, when participants prepare for the next module and complete individual and web-enabled group assignments.

Three of the six sessions will be held at the Tepper School of Business, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania USA, and three will be held at the HEC Lausanne, Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland.
