Investment Management Theory and Practice: A CIMA Certification Registered Education Program (online)Innovation and Images: Exploring the Intersections of Leadership and Photography

September 1 - October 30, 2015

Investment Management Theory and Practice is an online course for investment professionals pursuing the prestigious CIMA certification. Candidates take this course entirely online over a 60-day period immediately preceding a CIMA certification exam testing window. There is no need to travel or spend a week out of the office as this course was built with busy schedules in mind. Participants may study at any time they choose (i.e., weekends, evenings or during the day).

This course, led by industry pioneer Andrew Lo and financial certification specialist Jim Dobbs, includes comprehensive coverage of the topics and learning objectives found in the CIMA Certification Exams Detailed Content Outline (aka: core topics list). This course has been developed to help you better understand the concepts, calculations, and applications found in the CIMA core topics list; help you prepare for and pass the MIT course exam and CIMA certification exam; and help you take your practice to the next level.

Investment Management Theory and Practice walks you through the core topics and learning objectives found in the CIMA certification curriculum line-by-line. This online course uses several learning methods to help participants succeed including: classroom lecture videos, learning modules, exercises and applications, quizzes and a sample test.

Topic coverage includes: ethics and regulation, a review of financial fundamentals (including statistics, time value of money, and economic analysis), risk management, performance measurement and analysis, traditional and alternative investments, portfolio theory and models, behavioral finance, and the investment consulting process (including client discovery, investment policy, portfolio construction and management, manager search and selection, and portfolio review).

This online course reviews financial and investment concepts, theories, models, and strategies. Participants will develop the skills and resources needed to build and manage successful investment portfolios. The faculty team help participants navigate the complex and sometimes confusing world of investment thought and application. Participants will learn to develop investment strategies and portfolios based on client goals and objectives, time horizon, and risk tolerance.

Successful completion of this course satisfies the CIMA certification education requirement.

Global Executive Academy (multi-language)

September 8-17, 2015

MIT Sloan Executive Education is excited to advance to a new frontier in the world of executive education by bringing a diverse multinational audience together to experience MIT?s world-class education in a global multilingual setting. The idea behind the Global Executive Academy is to bring MIT content to the non-English speaking world by offering a multilingual educational experience on the MIT campus that draws on our existing open enrollment portfolio. While this offering provides non-English speaking executives access to the same MIT education that is currently available to their English-speaking counterparts, it also affords them unique benefits such as a multicultural environment, diversity of perspectives, cross-border networking, and a global experience.

The programs will be delivered "United Nations-style"?with simultaneous translation in up to six languages: Arabic, English, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.*  Executives and managers from different geographies, industries, companies and functions will learn together and draw on each other for their assigned projects and discussions. There will also be social activities designed to bridge the language barrier.

Academy participants will take part in four of MIT Sloan?s open enrollment courses that cover critical management issues:

Participants in the Academy will earn a MIT Sloan Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership. It is an ideal option for executives and senior managers seeking to enhance their general management skills in order to become effective leaders in a dynamic global business world. All four programs need to be completed to earn the certificate.

*Note: Languages are subject to change or cancellation. Also, we will consider adding another language to the program if at least 10 participants can be confirmed. Please contact us at execacademy@mit.edu if you would like to discuss.

Analyzing and Managing Service Networks with Self-routing Users

Motivated by networks with self-routing users who choose service facilities, we develop a network congestion model to analyze and improve decentralized system performance in cases where control by a centralized planner is not possible. We assume that individuals choose a facility for service based on a utility function that depends on travel time and the utility of service provided at a facility, where the latter is a function of the number of people (congestion) and a facility-specific scalar called a “congestion weight.” We develop models that capture individual behavior in this context and present an algorithm for finding a stable decentralized solution. Our approach demonstrates that the bounds on worst- and best-case decentralized system performance (prices of anarchy and stability, respectively) depend on the congestion weights. A major finding is that changing congestion weights makes it possible to achieve a stable decentralized solution that is also centrally optimal. We describe ways that congestion weights can be changed in practice and present efficiently-solvable optimization models capable of finding appropriate weights. Computational results for a problem motivated by the 2009 – 2010 H1N1 pandemic influenza vaccination campaign illustrate the usefulness of our models and algorithms for supporting policy and planning decisions.
