The Collegio Carlo Alberto (CCP), located in Torino, Italy, is a foundation created in 2004 as a joint initiative of the Compagnia di San Paolo and the University of Torino with the purpose of establishing cutting-edge education and research programs in finance, economics and broader social sciences. Today, CCP is one of the leading centers of excellence in economic and finance research and education in Europe. Our cooperation with CCP is the first of its kind for the Collegio and reflects high international demand for the level and mix of skills that the MCF program provides. Importantly, the agreement creates a direct link between the MCF program participants and the leading Italian and European financial institutions.
According to the terms of the agreement, upon the completion of the MCF program each program participant can, without additional cost, earn the Collegio’s Master in Computational Finance certificate as well. For this, she needs to attend two additional short courses (typically one or two days long) taught by distinguished finance professionals selected by the Collegio. In addition, they can participate in the Collegio’s Career Days organized by their sponsors – leading Italian and European financial and fintech firms. This allows them to meet the same prospective employers as the CCA students. Both the courses and the career day participation is currently online. Master certificates of CCP are broadly recognized among businesses in Italy and worldwide. Please contact us if you need more information.
Ultimately, that decision is made by the company providing the grant.
