Portfolio Management Program

The Portfolio Management Program (PMP) is an innovative teaching concept which provides students an ideal platform to apply state-of-the art concepts and recent developments from academic and applied research to "real-money" asset management.

It is organized by the Institut für strategische Kapitalmarktforschung (ISK) in Palais Coburg. The PMP is designed as a two-year program, where students act as analysts in the first year and progress to portfolio managers in the second year.

The course is aimed at students who are at the end of their Bachelor studies or are at the beginning of their Master studies and have chosen a financial specialization. Students in mathematics with a specialization in mathematical finance are also welcome to apply.
