Certified Securities Specialist Course -- Ateneo or UP?

I'm choosing between taking the course in Ateneo (graduate school) and UP (diliman).

Ateneo, P70k
UP, P45k

I'm working in Taguig and the benefit of taking it in Ateneo is that it's near from where I work. Travel time for me is usually 45mins - 1hr on normal days and at least 2hrs during heavy traffic days from Taguig to QC so I would risk being late for class if I attend school in UP. The up side is that I can request a shift change to accommodate my schedule if ever I decide to take it in UP.

So other than the price, what other pluses (or minuses) would I get from attending either school?

Thanks

    interested din ako dito kaso ang mahal...hay pwede ko ng investment sa stocks yan eh...
  • Yes... But you need this and a certification to be a trader, diba? I want to be a professional trader.
  • UST and Dela Salle - St. Benilde offers it also.

    UST is offering this also..Go USTE!
  • You don't this to be a license/professional equities trader/broker. All you need is to pass the CSR exam from SEC which cost more or less 5k.
  • whats the difference between the cert. sec. specialist and the cert. sec. rep.? thanks
  • I believe the CSS is for wannabe traders and the CSR is for wannabe brokers. That's how the PSE explained it to me. Does anyone have more input on this?

    Will you post the link on UP offering this course? I heard of ateneo's.

    What I know is that the venue for this course changes every every sem. Last sem it was at UST. Prior to that I think it was at Global City College. I'm not sure.

    No website link on UP. just a pdf posted in pse.com.ph a few months ago. Will try to post it if I can find a copy i saved a few months ago in my files.

    When is the next enrollment? TIA
  • saw this one on PSE's website too. classes will start on August na. sino sino nakapag take na nito? was it worth it? 45K is too steep.
  • What would be your goals on this? Seems like this is just a local certification (PSE). Personally, I'd rather pursue international certification like the CFA instead.
