Public pension fund trustees and other financial professionals can go back to school, in Malibu, Calif., no less, thanks to a new partnership between the National Institute for Public Finance and Pepperdine University.
The new Public Treasury Management program will be July 26-29, at Pepperdine's Graziadio School of Business and Management. Treasurers, investment staff, pension fund trustees and other finance professionals will earn a certificate after taking courses that include investments and pensions, public finance and debt management, and executive treasury management. Faculty members include public- and private-sector professionals and academic leaders.
The program will cover current public finance issues, industry best practices and strategies for dealing with public finance challenges. “The culmination of best practices, strategies, and ideas from private-sector, public finance and academic leaders makes the institute an invaluable learning experience,” said NIPF Co-Chairwoman and North Carolina state Treasurer Janet Cowell in a news release.
The enrollment deadline is June 15.
