Goals

We are delighted that you are considering applying to our Master of Science in Finance. We are looking for talented applicants who are enthusiastic about research and genuinely intellectually curious. If this sounds like you, we encourage you to take a closer look at our programme, and we look forward to receiving your application.
The Master of Science is the first year of the Toulouse School of Management doctoral programme in Management. This intensive programme combines the best of theory, practice and reality-based education creatively: graduates pursue careers in leading universities and business schools, policy-oriented institutions and private firms. We deliberately keep the doctoral programme small to allow you to work closely with your supervisor and develop interaction with all faculty members.

Students who successfully complete the first year of the programme are awarded a Master of Science and may choose to end their formal training. The goal of this one-year programme is to provide students with the quantitative, analytical and theoretical tools for a successful academic or industry-oriented career.
