Which Companies Want to Hire MFs?
Leading firms specializing in hedge funds, pension funds, money management, private equity, consulting, and university endowments are all seeking employees with expertise in asset management. Additionally, regulatory agencies from around the world face a critical shortage of staff members who can understand complex investment products and processes that are at the center of the industry. A master's degree in asset management, with a specialization in either alternative investments or real estate, prepares you to work in positions such as analyst, personal investment advisor, risk officer, compliance officer, trader, portfolio manager, pension consultant, researcher, and financial economist.
