"We provide our students with the best possible destination into Investment Banking and the financial industry"

Whilst working within the proprietary trading and institutional trading sectors, recognising skills gaps within the industry, M.C.M’s management team wrote and developed the first fully-evidenced, Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Financial Trading, and Level 3 Diploma in Financial Trading as education initiatives to address these gaps.

"All of our qualifications have been designed to address skills gaps within the financial services industry"

They are fully accredited by a Professional Awarding Body, and regulated by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual).
Our trader training academy provides the opportunity to obtain a variety of employer-led qualifications, covering foundation and professional levels to achieve occupational competency.

"We Connect Talent With Opportunity"

Our qualifications are accredited by a global professional awarding body, and regulated by OFQUAL (Office for qualifications and examinations), as a recognised standard and benchmark of excellence, sitting on both the Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF), and European Qualification Framework (EQF). The accredited trading qualifications also benefit from having a EUROPASS certificate supplement, whereby the qualification specification and certificate can be published in a variety of European languages, thus transcending qualification boundaries.
