They then attend a week-long residential program hosted by the IEOR Department at Columbia University, June 2-6, 2014. The coursework includes the study of the theory and practice of asset pricing, asset management, risk management, hedge fund management, corporate finance, fixed income analysis and foreign exchange. The CPM® designation is industry-wide recognized, now in its sixth year.
