III. Specialist Programmes
Our specialist programmes are single topic subjects, covered within our intermediate courses, but in much more depth.  The courses are very focussed and provide an opportunity to network and discuss the issues affecting the financial markets with your industry peers.

The courses are classroom based, 1-2 days in length and are not examined.  Delegates will however receive a certificate of attendance for their participation on the programme, jointly issued by ICMA and the ICMA Centre, Henley Business School, University of Reading.  The programmes are mostly held in London, but also in other European locations.
