Overview

The Master of Science in Finance is a one year program designed for students who wish to enhance their understanding of financial analysis and asset management in a professional setting. Apart from state-of-the-art technical skills, students acquire soft skills by enrolling in management courses aimed at preparing them for senior executive positions in their chosen career path.

The program is taught fully in English, making its international application one of its major strengths. The curriculum puts the emphasis on ethics, social responsibility and sustainability, thereby acknowledging that ethical conduct is critical for successful investment managers and financial analysts.

The MSc in Finance has been accepted into the CFA Institute University Recognition Program. This status is granted to institutions whose degree program(s) incorporate at least 70% of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK), which provide students with a solid grounding in the CBOK and positions them well to sit for the CFA exams.
