The last round of recruiting closed February 9, 2019.
For future applications, a great early step is to study the CFA Investment Foundations which are a nice set of free (with free login) materials on the CFA website.
Applications must include:
Completed application form
One-page “Wall Street” style résumé
One-page letter of intent outlining why you would like to join the CPMT program, ideas for further enhancing the program, and what skills and talents you can contribute
Applications are open to all students regardless of concentration.
Applications are reviewed by the faculty supervisor. Select applicants will be invited to an interview.
Interviews are conducted by a panel of between two to six people, composed of CPMT Selection Committee and current members. Interviewees will present a one-page written stock pick analysis to the selection committee at the start of the interview, and should be prepared to discuss their analysis following their presentation.
Final selection is decided upon by the Board of Trustees who consider the following factors:
Prior grades in ACCT, MATH, STAT, CPSC, ECON, and FNCE courses
Past work experience
Performance in the interview
Ability to commit time to the program
Due to the limited number of spots in the program, some highly skilled and capable applicants may not be offered a position. The CPMT program considers each application carefully and appreciates the time and effort each applicant puts into their application.
