Build your analytical skills. Fuel your propensity for innovation.

Mutual fund management is integral to how individuals and organizations prepare for the future. Consider the mutual fund that supports millions of retirement accounts. Another mutual fund may sustain a research and development effort of a biotech or pharmaceutical company. On an individual level, a mutual fund may secure a family’s ability to save for a home purchase.

Individuals with the knowledge and experience to build and maintain a portfolio of assets to accomplish the long-term aims of the mutual fund are highly valued across the globe. To become this leader, you need to master the technical skills of an investor and appreciate how markets and organizations function across economies.

This program prepares you for roles where you will manage other people’s money. With a deep classroom emphasis on a fund’s investment policy statement and asset allocation plan as well as methods to measure and manage risk, you will learn from respected practitioners with field expertise, real experience in fund management, and strong connections to the field.

Just-in-Time Learning. The Graduate Certificate in Mutual Fund Management is designed to give you training that you can use immediately. The skills you learn in an evening class will be useful to you the next morning at work. At D’Amore-McKim School of Business, you won’t find theoretical training for a theoretical future—you’ll have the opportunity to gain practical, real-world knowledge rooted in the realities of working life.

Study on your own terms. The Graduate Certificate in Mutual Fund Management has been designed with working professionals in mind. Courses are offered on weeknights and Saturdays. You may even take one of our courses online. You can choose to come to campus just one night a week or accelerate the program by taking a heavier course load each semester.

Start your Graduate Certificate in Mutual Fund Management at a time that works for you. You can enter the program in January, May, or September.

Build toward something more. In the Graduate Certificate in Mutual Fund Management, you will gain the core knowledge and skills necessary to carry out essential marketing functions—from branding new products to advertising services and exploring new consumer audiences.

When you are ready to pursue a full graduate degree at Northeastern University—now or in the future—the credits you earn during the certificate program may be applied to eligible master’s programs, including the Part-Time MBA. This is a valuable opportunity to turn your career-enhancing graduate certificate into a more advanced professional credential.
