The asset management industry continues to be a leading field of interest for students.

The eVestment report, published earlier this month, investigates the strength of school networks within the industry, where they are most concentrated and how networks compare to each other.

The report draws on data on over 36,000 active professionals, from over 4,500 asset management firms, who represent over 1,000 universities and colleges globally.

Given the wide range of roles in the asset management industry, the report analyses professionals in front office roles – the key decision makers. These include fund managers and the various support roles required to run a successful asset management firm.
