CMT Association forms a new partnership with Monash University Malaysia

MARCH 2, 2022 – The CMT Association is proud to announce its new partnership with the School of Business through Monash University Malaysia’s inclusion in the CMT Association’s Academic Partner Program.

Selection for the CMT Association’s Academic Partner Program signifies a strong commitment to students’ career readiness and applied learning. Institutions in the Academic Partner Program demonstrate academic rigor in financial courses ranging from quantitative methodologies to behavioral finance, as well as portfolio management and other key aspects of technical analysis.

With this partnership, the two institutions illustrate an innovative solution to the growing demand for student education and career preparedness, while advocating for the advancement of technical analysis in India. Technical analysis, which is a crucial part of investment and trading decisions, has evolved over hundreds of years. While modern technical analysis retains its roots in classical observations of market behavior, it extends beyond pattern recognition to employ groundbreaking quantitative methodologies and rules-based trading-system design and testing.

Quote from Tyler Wood, Managing Director, CMT Association, New York, NY:

It is a wonderful opportunity to partner with Monash University Malaysia as they prepare the next generation of finance professionals. As a compliment to the fundamental drivers of equity valuation, investors need to understand the flood of data provided by markets themselves, the interplay and correlation between asset classes, and how less-than-rational behaviors drive price action across all timeframes. To meet the changing demands of global markets, CMT Association believes practicum education is paramount to student learning. The CMT Program is designed to bridge theory with practice.

Quote from Head of Department of Finance, Dr. Yessy Arnold Peranginangin:

In spearheading Finance education at the School of Business, our partnership with the CMT Association will help augment our curriculum to include theory, practice, and application of technical analysis. The partnership will expose our students to the implementation of technical analysis through internship and investment challenges and gain scholarships to become accredited charter holders. On research, our academic staff will have the opportunity to publish academic work at the CMT Association’s journal, the Journal of Technical Analysis. CMT charter holders can collaborate with Monash University Malaysia to deliver world-class Executive Education modules for finance professionals.

Quote from Head of School of Business, Prof. Nafis Alam: 

It is encouraging for the School of Business, Monash University Malaysia, to forge a partnership with Chartered Market Technician (CMT) Association, which signifies the inclusion of Monash University Malaysia as a part of the CMT Association Academic Partner Program. This association will give a pathway to our banking and finance students in developing their technical analysis and professional analytical skills, which will be a big boost for their employability.
