Our BCom Honours in Investment Management is the first to offer students training that combines rigorous academic groundwork with real-world experience in investment management, global internship opportunities, and access to the expertise of corporate partners from around the world.
The program draws on the leading-edge work of one of the world’s top finance research and teaching teams at the Desautels Faculty of Management, and on the extensive knowledge resources available within McGill’s international network of alumni and corporate friends.
The BCom Honours in Investment Management prepares students for a career in financial asset management, either on the buy-side working with active portfolio allocation or on the sell-side, working for brokerage firms. The program gives students a rigorous training in accounting, statistics and finance. The program enables students to analyze financial statements, perform company valuations, construct efficient portfolios with appropriate risk profiles, and manage risk using dynamic trading strategies and derivative instruments.
