Information event on the portfolio management program

ZZ WIEN invites you to a Portfolio Management Program information event on Thursday June 9, 2022, at 5 pm via zoom

We would like to call your attention to the Portfolio Management Program (PMP), which is offered primarily to future master students with a high interest in capital markets. The Research Institute for Capital Markets holds a Portfolio Management Program information event on Thursday June 9, 2022, at 5 p.m. This event will explain the program including your chances and challenges. The event will take place via Zoom. All relevant information can be found at the end of the mail.

This invitation is directed towards all students with a keen interest in capital markets and asset management. The world of finance has become increasingly complex, and demand has grown steadily for professionals with a blend of skills in mathematics, computer skills and finance. Hence, we specifically aim at students with a mathematical/computer science/finance background who want to expand their knowledge into other areas. Ideally, you are finalizing your bachelor’s degree and plan to pursue a master’s degree and want to complement your academic education with a practical perspective.

The program and your chances

The portfolio management program is a training initiative that is unique across continental Europe, where students can combine their theoretical knowledge with practical work through the management of three real money portfolios. Each of the portfolios is endowed with assets worth over one million euros. The participation in the program offers students the following:

  • Acquisition of knowledge in the field of practical asset management
  • Asset management infrastructure including Bloomberg and other financial data vendors
  • Additional qualification for the job market through practical experience in asset management
  • Course certification upon successful participation in the program

Further information can also be found on our website including a short video about the PMP.

Application deadline
You can hand in your application until Friday, 23 September 2022 at midnight.
