Are you an experienced investment professional with at least 8 years of working experience? Do you want to excel and get the best out of yourself? Are you looking for a flexible in-depth executive education program to even further sharpen your skills and investment knowledge? The modular RBA program is tailored just for you!
The intensive world-class curriculum combines case studies, experiential projects and a variety of learning activities that make the RBA program a unique experience. In person, instructor-led training gives participants ample opportunity to interact with teachers and fellow participants, learn from each other and discuss individual real life cases.
The program adapts to your needs. Interactive modules are combined in a 2.5 years track, where you can adjust the planning that fits best with your working schedule.
Alternatively, you may follow just one or more modules of the RBA program of your specific interest. This approach is very suitable for people who followed the CFA program or have done the RBA program in the past. Completion of a module is awarded with a certificate. Completing the whole track of 12 modules entitles you to the RBA designation.

The 12 modules form a consistent portfolio and constitute around the pillars Learn, Change and Lead. To receive an RBA accreditation the 12 modules need successful completion.
