Montréal, November 6, 2013. Vanier College and Moody’s Analytics/CSI are pleased to announce a partnership agreement to provide key industry courses supplementing the college’s existing professional development courses and industry-specific certification programs.
By partnering with Moody’s Analytics/CSI, Vanier College is providing students with an opportunity to enter the employment market and the financial services industry already possessing industry-recognized credentials and licensing courses, a significant advantage in any employment search.
“We’re very excited to be partnering with Vanier College. We work with all of the major financial institutions in Canada and many of the programs offered are the same programs that are embedded into job requirements with the top banks in Canada.” Carl Brillinger, Director, Moody’s Analytics.
Through this partnership, Vanier College will offer new 21-hour coaching sessions for individuals registering to the online Canadian Securities Course with Moody’s Analytics/CSI, in English or in French.
