About the course
The Premier Executive Development Program for Financial Industry Professionals
For 69 years, SIFMA and The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania have partnered to develop the industry’s high-potential, rising leaders. Each March, SII brings together 800 participants from across the industry with a world-class faculty on the campus of The Wharton School in Philadelphia.
Participants meet for one week over three consecutive years to develop leadership and managerial skills, and enhance investment and industry knowledge. SII’s cost-effective talent development approach delivers actionable knowledge that is implementable today: the mission of the Institute is to equip each participant with practical information, ideas, and answers directly applicable to their present and future responsibilities. Its customized curriculum is redesigned each year to reflect the needs of an ever-changing industry landscape.
