The Aresty Institute of Executive Education at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania has announced a new online program, Asset Management @ Wharton Online, with online learning leader, FIRST FINANCE Institute (FFI).
The three-course, 17-week program is designed to create a new benchmark credential in the field of asset management. The program will be led by Wharton faculty members David Musto, Jules van Binsbergen, and Christopher Geczy.
“As the asset management industry has changed considerably in recent years, we believe now is an excellent time for current and prospective financial professionals to deepen their understanding of these critical topics,” says Wharton Finance Professor David Musto, who is the Ronald O. Perelman Professor and chair of the finance department at Wharton.
The objective of the program is to develop a baseline set of knowledge in the key areas of asset management.

Students should expect to spend three to five hours per week on the program.
