The Regional Stock Exchange (BRVM) and the School of Management Sciences of the University of Quebec at Montreal (ESG UQAM) have created a formal framework for cooperation for a long-term partnership in the field of training, by signing a Memorandum
of Cooperation Agreement.

For the Director General of the BRVM and DC / BR, Mr. Edoh Kossi AMENOUNVE, « It is a question of providing a response to the needs of financial education expressed by the general public (basic training on the financial markets) and market professionals (continuing education and certification) in light of the new demands of the financial professions in the face of a changing technological environment « .
The BRVM has been deploying training efforts in recent years and intends to accelerate the pace of the issues so that the penetration of the notions and practices of finance in the populations is stronger. This is why « the BRVM has decided to call upon technical partners such as ESG UQAM, which is a School of Excellence in Canada to accompany it, » said AMENOUNVE.
