"I took one of the IFSID derivatives courses in winter 2014. The experience was both useful and informative. The high-calibre courses given at IFSID are helping to make Montreal a global authority in derivatives management and strike a balance between industry requirements and university-level education. The module-by-module approach makes it possible to focus on specific aspects of derivatives based on individual needs. All in all, I greatly appreciated the program and recommend it to any professionals looking to enhance their skills in this key sector of the Quebec financial services industry."

Full Description

The IFSID derivative training cycle is a professional development program offering comprehensive, up-to-date information on derivatives and structured products, their markets, strategies, risk management, back-office operations, and accounting and legal considerations.

The modular structure of this program (one introductory module offered in french and english, six modules on various types of derivatives and four modules on specialized topics) offers a high degree of flexibility to cater to your specific needs, allowing you to register for only those courses you wish to take out of the 90-hour cycle.

All classes are held at HEC Montréal (three-hour class on a weekday evening, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.).

We recommend starting with the introductory module, but you are free to pick and choose your courses as you see fit.
