The Wealth Management (MWM) programme from Singapore Management University is suitable for both existing and aspiring wealth managers. Qualified career-switchers will have opportunities to participate in internship programmes.
MWM is a 12-month full-time programme designed to meet the needs of both aspiring and seasoned wealth managers who wish to deepen their skills, knowledge and expertise. The modular structure allows professionals to pursue a Master’s degree while working; and those without wealth management experience can embark on an internship to enhance their employability.The programme’s curriculum has also incorporated the relevant examination and certification for private banking.
Designed in close consultation with the wealth management industry, the curriculum is regularly reviewed to reflect industry developments. There is a careful balance between the theory and practice of wealth management.
The programme is taught by experienced faculty and competent industry professionals who share their knowledge and skills generously with the participants. Participants will have ample opportunities to meet their peers and industry captains in seminars, talks, internships and site visits. Participants without wealth management experience are encouraged to take part in the internship programme to gain relevant experience and to enhance their employability.
Practising wealth managers, including relationship managers, product specialists, premier banking officers and independent financial advisers will find the programme useful in deepening or broadening their investment knowledge. The programme covers the whole value chain of wealth management and discusses strategic developments in the industry useful for career advancement. The programme coverage is over and above the CFA curriculum.
The programme will also greatly benefit investment managers who carry out asset allocations, risk management, security analysis and other related functions. This group of professionals would also include research analysts, managers of mutual funds and closed-end funds.
