Each student is expected to spend around 1-4 hours on these study sessions at their own pace to understand theoretical concepts underlying equity research process. Students are expected to spend 80 hours on this.

2. Webinars – Virtual Classrooms

Students are also expected to submit work-in-progress financial models / investment notes to get critical feedback from mentors. Students are expected to spend 12 hours on this.

4. Capstone Project – Where Theory Meets Practical Application

Each M-CERA® participant needs to prepare the following on a selected company as part of the Program:

  • A summary investment note highlighting arguments facilitating the investment decision  (BUY/SELL/HOLD), key business drivers and underlying macro/industry environment

While the assigned mentor will guide student through the process, the student will be critically evaluated on application of learned financial concepts and following the equity research process.

5. Certification – The Result of Hard Work

Each M-CERA® participant would be given a certificate on successful completion of the training. The performance on the “Capstone Project” and final test will be the deciding factor.
