WHY STUDY FINANCE?
Finance is ultimately about taking optimal and strategic decisions in an uncertain environment, which applies to all areas of business. A modern manager requires good insight into the drivers of the financial situation of an enterprise, which is intimately connected with its success. The Master of Science programme in Finance, therefore, will provide you not only with the required education for a career in finance and consulting, but also a strong basis for management positions in a broad range of industries. BI’s Department of Finance is ranked in the top ten in Europe, giving you a solid foundation as a starting point and an education that is recognised internationally.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
The purpose of the programme is to provide the best possible education and environment for the development of well-trained, knowledgeable and socially responsible professionals for finance and other related positions. At the same time, since Finance is a quantitative and analytical subject, students will develop these skills, which are transferrable to all other business disciplines. These skills form the basis for critically assessing problems and being able to make optimal and strategic decisions. The aim is to develop valuable individuals for corporations and society both in relation to current practices and designing a better future with the ability to adjust to new challenges with vision.
The Master’s programme in Finance has an applied focus. Students will develop IT and programming skills to meet the needs of an industry that is becoming increasingly technological.
Among the most popular topics, you will find:
- Quantitative Methods for Finance: You will be introduced to programming in MatLab, as there is increasing demand for finance candidates with technical skills
- Applied Valuation: You will learn a range of valuation techniques, and when the different techniques should be used. The use of Bloomberg terminals will give you the skills you need for a career in the industry.
- Investments: You will review the different financial assets available to the portfolio manager, the markets in which they trade, their risk-return characteristics, and how they are priced.
