What is MIA?

MIA is the Mediolanum Investment Academy which is a 24-month long paid programme built for those who are interested in a career in asset management. As part of the programme you will have the opportunity to develop your skills by working alongside experienced investment professionals in an organisation where more than €59 billion is actively managed.

The programme was successfully launched in 2022 and we are now launching the third edition in 2024.

Over the course of 24 months you will get the opportunity to gain broad experience in asset management across different asset classes. You will work across different areas of investments during the programme and be involved in very interesting projects and side by side with the most experienced investment professionals in the organisation.

The role of an MIA participant has been developed as a front office role to allow for successful candidates to gain valuable insight into a global asset management organisation. As part of the programme's structure, you will be encouraged to learn and acquire both hard and soft skills fundamental for your success in the investment industry.

In the first 2 years, successful candidates will work as Investment Associate Analysts.

Every participant will have a “mentor” who will act as a point of reference and coach for the entire programme. You will also get the chance to prove yourself as a valuable member of the team while working on assignments, research reports and other projects.

The programme acts as a stepping stone for your future career in asset management. If you’re ambitious, excited about a career in investment and willing to learn don’t miss this opportunity!
