Objectives

 

Today, new prudential rules have given a prominent place to risk control framework within financial institutions. Skills in terms of risk management are increasingly requested by financial institutions and open up many career opportunities, be they in the front, middle or back office.

 

The objectives are to prepare:

- future managers for careers in market finance and risk management in large financial institutions;

- professional certifications: CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst), Professional Risk Managers (PRM) and AMF

As English is the working language of all financial institutions, all courses are entirely delivered in English. It is an objective to prepare students for career opportunities on financial markets abroad, especially in front office positions.
