  • Portfolio Management Program

    The Portfolio Management Program (PMP) is an extracurricular project outside the formal master curriculum in which, if selected, you will actively manage a real-money portfolio of 1 million Euros per group with a total portfolio value of 3 million Euros. The concept of the PMP enables you to combine theory and practice to develop real trading strategies on the open market. 

    You will actively conduct financial and economic research and analysis to understand the fundamentals of investing and asset management. This will help you develop the necessary skills to take this real-money portfolio and further develop a strategy to allocate and manage the funds.
