The Californian Institute of Trading offers a MBA through a unique pedagogic approach that combines both a study of financial theory and applied practice on a trading floor. The CIT recruits and selects students based on their potential through competitive entrance exams, both in France and across the world, to prepare them for careers in market finance.
The Institute seeks to mold its students into leaders capable of anticipating changes in the world, and to become responsible actors in positions of leadership.
To succeed in our ambition, we’ve set high expectations for ourselves and for our students:
We ensure that all students have the opportunity to work in an international setting from the beginning and through the duration of their studies. Whether through an exchange program or a double diploma, students have the chance to experience working in a diverse multinational environment on the CIT campus.
The CIT’s location in the heart of Los Angeles is not arbitrary. It allows students to expose themselves to multiculturalism in an Anglophone environment, in which they become bilingual Traders, Quants, researchers or fortune managers. Students are immersed in North American business culture, and leave the CIT with a connection to a strong network of stakeholders central to market finance.
