A real-world financial services training program

Rigorous Curriculum

We seek students with a passion for finance and provide them with real-word opportunities to learn and prepare for a successful career path.

Through a mentor- protégé learning approach known among Hawaiians as “Ma Ka Hana Ka Ike” which translates to “from the doing comes the knowledge,” students complete a five-year program with specialized training in Investment Banking, Private Equity and Asset Management. They are taught all aspects of long and short equity asset management and are then given the chance to apply their newfound skills to assist in the operation of a real-world equity portfolio.
