The group will participate in a one-year intensive training course, that will take place in four European cities – London, Madrid, Copenhagen and Frankfurt. The curriculum will combine academic subject matter with client management; and feature contributions from industry experts and business leaders on topics ranging from managing the transition into leadership and cross border capital flows.
