The ICMA Executive Education offering

ICMA Executive Education’s courses are internationally recognised and are required training by many of our Member firms.  The programmes are benchmark qualifications for both the front office and operations areas of the business and are accredited by the UK Financial Skills Partnership (FSP), the skills champion of the finance industry.  The programmes combine the best of both market and academic practice and are designed to be interactive and equip participants with practical skills they can use in their day-to-day jobs.  

ICMA Executive Education is unique in that ICMA and the ICMA Centre, Henley Business School, University of Reading work together to deliver training courses, taught by current and former financial markets practitioners which blend practical and academic know-how, so that candidates have a thorough understanding of the topics being discussed.

The courses attract an international client base and present an opportunity to network with counterparts from a whole host of financial institutions.  Delegates who benefit from our courses work in the top tier investment banks, stock exchanges, law firms and regulatory bodies.
