"While exploring my next career challenge, curious about how hedge fund clients operate their business after over 10 years working on the service provider side, I took the course. I’ve not just gained a holistic hands-on real-practice understanding of hedge funds from setup to management, but also met amazing people in the industry. The program provides networking opportunities to connect with global alumni and instructors, very fortunate to be part of it!"
Michelle Liu, AVP at State Street

"I joined the program to better understand the needs, challenges and requirements faced by fund managers in a fast moving and ever changing alternative asset industry. The insights from leading specialists and experts gathered by the program were very valuable, providing both theoretical but also real life experiences. We were also able to forge meaningful relationships with other fellow students, by sharing each other’s views and exposure from different backgrounds."
Patrice Lo, Director at SS&C GlobeOp

"I took this program to understand the diverse spectrum of the hedge fund industry and to get a deeper understanding of the various stakeholders’ roles within this multi-faceted ecosystem. I have benefited greatly from the rich content of the course and expanded my network in the industry. The course has broadened my overall perspective in this domain which i intend to leverage in the future."
Kasturi Majumdar, Vice President at Maples Group

"As an IT professional becoming more involved in the business side of Hedge Funds, this course was extremely valuable. The modules on every aspect of a Hedge Fund (including IT) were tremendous. You also have access to industry leaders not only in a teaching setting, but in social situations giving you access to their wisdom in an amazing way. I am very grateful Henley provided this opportunity."
