CMC is committed to helping you realise your dreams!

Many students with an Australian education background fail the attempt to step into leading investment banks, because they lack relevant experience.

Our program is designed for ambitious talents like you!

The course offers hands-on training in fund management and administration, wealth management, M&A deals, financial modeling, Excel cases, IBD interview, and Big Four consulting. It also includes a mentee-exclusive network group. Mentees are guaranteed to intern at a front desk position with a local investment bank.
