Master in Wealth Management

Full-time Format

The full-time format is structured in two semesters, each semester containing 30 ECTS.  Courses are taught in block format involving half-day or entire-day classes.  The days of the week on which classes are held can vary by week.  Classes in one course may or may not be in successive days.  The schedule for classes and exams is published in advanced in a semester calendar.  Total class size is between 30 and 35 students (including both full- and part-time students).
Students may elect to extend the duration of their course for an additional, third semester in order to facilitate finding an internship.  In this case, the student may perform an internship up to the end of the following Winter Semester (mid-February).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Full time students participate in the required academic week-in-residence in Singapore upon successful completion of all other course requirements of the academic year.

 

Part-time Format

Students sponsored by their company for part-time study may elect to follow the course on a part-time basis over a two-year period.  During this period they may continue to be employed on a part-time basis, on a half-time basis during academic sessions.
Part-time students take the classes together with the full-time students, taught in block format involving half-day or entire-day classes during the day.  During the academic sessions the number of course days per week will be between two or three days on average.  However, this is subject to variation in any given week - some weeks will require a greater number of days class attendance and some fewer.  The part-time format requires students to take half the regular total course load in each semester over two academic years.  Students select which courses they wish to take from the courses offered in each semester, leading to the completion of all required credits within four consecutive semesters.
Each course in this Master's is offered only in one semester (Winter or Summer) in an academic year.  It is the student's responsibility to ensure that he or she completes the required courses in the semester they are given, with the requisite number of credits, in order to be eligible for graduation in a desired year.
Given the structure of the part-time format, part-time students are required to be present on average two to three days (during the daytime) in each weak of the academic semester (in addition to exams, extra-curricular courses and other events).  It is therefore not possible for part-time students to engage simultaneously in full-time employment. Part time students participate in the required academic week-in-residence in Singapore upon successful completion of all other course requirements.
Arrangements for employment on a part-time basis during the duration of the course are the responsibility of the student.  Experience shows that employers will grant such a facility, including in some cases financial support for the tuition fees, to existing employees whom they wish to support in the purpose of this Master's for the purpose of upgrading their qualifications.
