About the Programme

Short Summary

The master’s programme in Finance is designed to equip students with a strong foundation in analytical and empirical analysis, and to educate them more generally about the research process in finance and related disciplines. The valuation concepts and techniques taught to you have proven applicability even outside the traditional investment banking community. Courses in the programme aim to provide deeper knowledge and operational understanding of concepts and techniques, thereby enabling you to apply them to practical problems.

About the Programme

Financial questions arise almost everywhere in modern life. Individuals must manage their income, expenses, savings, and investments. Companies must run their financial operations in such a way that all stakeholders benefit, including employees, owners, and the surrounding community. Globally, we must establish socially responsible investment practices that provide resources for tackling issues like poverty and environmental sustainability. The skills developed during the master’s programme in Finance help you to provide educated answers to these various challenges.

Who Should Apply?

Do you want to gain operational understanding of financial concepts and develop the skills to apply financial theory to practical problems?

Do you want to use state-of-the-art technology to explore extensive real-time data from global exchanges, research material from international investment banks, and realistic positions of securities?

Are you interested in gaining programming skills to meet the needs of an increasingly technological industry?

If so, then apply for the master’s programme in Finance.
