New Joint EMBA in Asset and Wealth Management
The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University announced Wednesday that it will offer an innovative Executive MBA (EMBA) program in Asset and Wealth Management in conjunction with HEC Lausanne, the Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Lausanne, and the Swiss Finance Institute.
The degree program will meet the requirements for multifaceted asset and wealth management professionals within the global marketplace, a need that has been highlighted by challenging economic conditions. Graduates will receive an Executive MBA Degree in Asset and Wealth Management from both the Tepper School of Business and from HEC Lausanne.
“Current economic conditions have made it clear that asset management professionals require a solid understanding of the principles of finance and investment as well as the application of fundamental models in order to make sound decisions,” said Ilker Baybars, deputy dean and professor of operations management at Tepper School of Business.
“This new dual-degree program will include a focus on the practical tools vital for professional wealth managers in providing their clients with the most reliable and profitable advice.”
The program will be spread over 20 months and will involve six two-week classroom modules based alternately at the Tepper School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and HEC Lausanne in Lausanne, Switzerland. Expected to attract investment professionals from around the world, the inaugural class begins in May 2011.
