"The aim of the MSc is to prepare job-ready professionals thanks to a balance between theory and practice. The school widely favors the interaction with finance professionals both in the design of the program and in the education towards our students.

 

The MSc prepares our students to heavily use operational tools necessary for their future career such as VBA, Excel or Bloomberg.
