The collaboration between the two institutions also means that Queen Mary will finance its students’ CISI membership applications.
Ruth Martin, CISI Managing Director, said: ‘We are delighted to be partnering with Queen Mary on this project which, in its first phase, will enable students to obtain the CISI’s highest level professional qualification as part of a challenging and high quality programme. This partnership between a chartered professional body and a higher education institution is an excellent opportunity for students to bridge the gap between academia and the work place and will provide them with an important competitive edge in the jobs market.’
Professor George Kapetanios, Head of Queen Mary’s School of Economics and Finance, said: ‘We are extremely pleased to start this valuable collaboration with CISI. Being part of this exciting partnership enhances Queen Mary’s strategy of becoming a research leader in the area of economics and finance and also helps us provide excellent preparation to our students for their professional life.’
