Learning Opportunity: Master in Wealth Management - Full Time Programme

Master in Wealth Management - Full Time Programme

Course Information

The Master in Wealth Management (MWM) is designed to educate and train future wealth managers.
The programme combines traditional finance subjects with person-, legal- and tax-centric subjects such as client relationship management, estate planning, ethics and international taxation.

The curriculum is made up of 27 courses, taught over short intensive periods, a module in Singapore, and an internship. The 27 courses offered in the programme are divided into investment-centric courses (equities, bonds, real estate, hedge funds, derivatives, alternative investments, etc.), client-centric courses (personal portfolio management, estate planning, communication, tax-planning, etc.) and courses on  laws and ethics.

At the end of their studies in Luxembourg, all full-students spend a week in residence at the Singapore Management University (SMU). The tailor-made module complements the courses that students have already followed, and is intended to deepen their understanding of specific Wealth Management topics especially focusing on the Asian market. Courses are taught by SMU professors Wealth Management. During the week in Singapore, students will also visit banks and/or other relevant institutions in the country. 

After earning 54 ECTS credits, full-time students will put into practice their newly learned skills and knowledge in an internship.

Classes are participative and practice oriented. For many courses (even the most technical and factual ones), we will involve practitioners drawn from the PBGL group to elaborate on the practical significance of the material learned. For some of the most “core” wealth management courses panel discussions with experienced private bankers and realistic case-studies will be used.

Several courses will be given over the course of one to three full days of teaching. This concentrated format - as opposed to spreading out the courses and having two or more subjects each day – is valued by the students who get to spend one or more days exclusively with their course lecturer(s).
