Is there a particular course or project within the curriculum that you would like to highlight? Why does it stand out?
My favorite course was Investment Analysis and Portfolio Management (MET AD 717), because it is so useful for finance practitioners in a variety positions, and I believe it will help me earn my CFA certification. Even though I have finished the course, I continue to study it deeply. It involved knowledge of financial institutions, equity evaluation, fixed income analysis, and portfolio management for financial institution and high net-worth individuals. I used much of what I learned in this course during my summer internship. One of my responsibilities was to develop and implement investment strategies for clients. My senior manager was satisfied with my work writing an IPS (Investment Policy Statement) and strategizing asset allocation and portfolio management plans for clients.
