Programme outline

The programme educates students in a personalised academic environment for success in a wide variety of finance jobs. It gives students practical expertise in the key areas of finance within the new post crisis (2008 and today again) financial environment in the fields of trading, risk management, sales, investment advisory, sustainable finance… Secondly, it teaches these courses within a global macro-economic and financial environment with market-oriented courses that  will enable the students to become conscious of a new financial and economic environment including a key component that may remain with them throughout their
careers: a stockpile of world debt.

The availability of Reuters and Bloomberg  terminals with existing live quotes and up-to-the-minute financial information allows students to follow and better understand the correlation between geopolitics, economics and the financial markets.
