Goals


The curriculum offers a rigorous training programme, covering the foundations of finance during the first year and offering students the option to specialise in one of three fields during the second year (corporate finance, financial markets or finance and information technology). The programme is based on a variety of teaching methods, ranging from lectures to case studies and team projects. Our graduates are highly sought after by French and international recruiters, such as banks, consultancies, large multinationals and asset management firms, among others.

The first year of the Master in Finance provides rigorous training in the principles of finance. This first year allows students to build a strong conceptual framework in order to analyse financial issues. The second year of the programme builds on this by developing practical applications. Additionally, the programme offers students essential development skills from related disciplines such as computer science, econometrics, mathematics and accounting.

The content and teaching on this Master is provided by a team of highly reputed professors, with international teaching experience at such prestigious institutions as Princeton University, University of Warwick, University of Oxford, Georgia State University, HEC Paris, University of California Santa Barbara, New York University, Carnegie Mellon University, and the Wharton School. In addition, numerous courses are taught by professionals from multinational firms and financial institutions whose expertise makes this a truly exceptional programme.
