Applied Finance Project
The integrative finance project is a core component of the program. It provides the opportunity to immediately put into practice the skills and knowledge that students acquire in the classroom. Students fulfill this requirement in three overlapping stages:
- Desautels Capital Management Inc. (June to May): Upon entry into the program, students join Desautels Capital Management (DCM) as analysts. DCM is a licensed and regulated asset management firm, with an independent board of directors and external investors. As analysts, students are responsible for a particular sector, identifying investment opportunities, and pitching them to colleagues. In addition, students are responsible for dealing with regulatory issues, compliance, trading and execution, back office settlement, preparation and filing of financial statements, and communication with clients.
- Professional Seminar Series (August to March): Seminars will be held regularly to expose students to current issues and practices in financial markets. The seminars will be given by professionals from various industries, e.g. hedge funds, pension funds, tax/legal accountants, etc., and will provide unique networking opportunities.
- Final Project (January to May/October): Students will work on a finance topic of their choice under the supervision of a faculty member. Throughout the project, students will have the opportunity to think independently and creatively about an important financial topic, apply their quantitative skills, and ultimately showcase marketable skillsets in an area of their interest.
International Study Trip
In the Fall, students enrolled in the MMF program travel to London, England to witness firsthand how today’s financial sector operates in a booming metropolis. Over the span of five days and thanks to McGill’s extensive alumni network, students meet with several distinct financial organizations that operate across a variety of areas, such as asset management, real estate, risk management, and private equity.
