Money Management Institute Launches Program for NexGen Investment Professionals


The Money Management Institute (MMI) has launched a three-week development program called Academy for investment professionals in the early stages of their careers. Academy is being delivered in partnership with NYU Stern Executive Education and will offer participants exposure to the latest management and leadership theories and applications as well as the varied roles, functions, and institutions of the financial services ecosystem.

Beginning this April, individuals who are accepted into the program will complete an online graduate-level curriculum, participate in experiential workshops at leading industry firms, and attend an in-person residency at NYU Stern School of Business. Applications will be accepted through March 22, 2024 for this spring’s program on the MMI website.

Successful completion of this hybrid experience will equip participants with NYU Stern Executive Education co-branded certificates, professional upskilling, and an expanded network.

“Investing in professional development opportunities for employees is critical for firms to survive and thrive in today’s world,” said Tim Williams, Director of Education Initiatives at MMI. “Firms in the investment management industry can now rely on MMI to provide all levels of their organization with timely education, necessary upskilling, and invaluable networking opportunities.”

Williams noted that the hybrid approach to the program consists of two weeks online and one week in-person, but online sessions account for about 90 minutes a day during the two online weeks as opposed to a full two-and-a-half days of immersive training during the in-person week.

Participants in Academy will also gain access to MMI content, webinars, roundtables and events, and get discounted access to accreditations from CFA Institute, Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst Association, Fi360 and Investments and Wealth Institute. For participants’ firms, Academy offers a path toward retention and development of key young professionals, while also saving the time and resources needed to train new talent.

NYU Stern Executive Education certificate programs are led by Stern’s world-renowned faculty and are designed for executives to retool, advance and expand their skills and knowledge.

“We are proud to collaborate with NYU Stern Executive Education to offer Academy, which we know will have a profound impact on participants and their firms, and we hope this incredible learning opportunity will enhance the career growth of the industry’s early talent,” said Craig Pfeiffer, President and CEO of MMI.
