Week I: Foundation

2019 Program Dates: July 21 - 26

This intensive five-day course takes place at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business in Washington, DC.

  • analyze suitability standards and their relation to investment recommendations and understand how to properly apply them;
  • discuss the importance of supervisory practices and internal controls;
  • explain specific ethical issues in the securities industry; and
  • explain new developments in securities regulation, the securities industry and securities markets.
