The concentration in Capital Markets and Investments (CMI) prepares students for positions on the buy and sell sides of the capital markets, including corporate treasury, securities analysis and portfolio management, sales and trading, and personal client services.
The curriculum includes a rigorous theoretical component and a demanding applied component. Courses are structured to provide students a nearly comprehensive preparation for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) program. Many CMI students apply to the Applied Investment Management (AIM) course, in which students manage a real portfolio of financial assets. Historically, UNC Kenan-Flagler has placed about 15 percent of the graduating class in capital markets and investment positions. The school has alumni in all global financial centers and major financial institutions.
