AMF certification

Thanks to this Master, students have the chance to take an FMA (Financial Markets Authority) certification test delivered by FMA-approved trainers.

These include legal and fiscal engineering, life insurance techniques, asset management, and real estate markets.

Skill objectives

For successful completion of their Masters, students must validate the five following skillsets.

If students do not validate all the skillsets required for obtaining the professional certificate but successfully complete all skills related to one of the sets, each of the skillsets concerned will have been definitively validated.

  1. Devising a departmental/organizational strategy
  2. Planning, optimizing, and managing the budget and coordination of z department and/or organization’s financial affairs
  3. Managing a transformation and/or innovation project in a national and/or international context
  4. Managing individual staff and teams
  5. Implementing a wealth management policy

This program cannot be combined with another training program.

However, partial certification with another program is possible (see the RNCP diploma file).

In addition, prior professional experience may be validated with credits upon request, which must be submitted by email to: vae@ggeedu.fr

A word from the Head of Specialization

"In this crisis period characterized by inflation, interest rate rises set by central banks, and increasing uncertainty surrounding the future of investing, wealth management advisors have become essential for individuals, families, and companies. They play a crucial role in maintaining the correct management of investors’ portfolios. Thanks to the teaching approach implemented by our faculty, students of the PSB Master’s in Wealth Management follow all the latest geo-economic, financial, insurance, and taxation developments."

                          Work-study student and wealth management advisor, Société Générale

                          I wanted to join Paris School of Business as I knew that the trade sector was of interest to me, but without yet knowing exactly what direction I would take or what I wanted to do.

                          The various conferences, associations and contacts established with other students and alumni guided me and revealed which path to choose. In addition, the exposure the school provides to the international scene was among the reasons behind my decision, an exposure that has served me very well since.
