MSc Finance Thesis

This page contains important information for students who want to write a MSc Finance Thesis.

Application Form


CIBIF tries to facilitate that students combine internships with master theses. We currently have a couple of internship projects that are suitable for a master thesis:

  1. Asset management internship at PGGM
  2. Internships at ABN AMRO trading

For students doing an intership, we use wider deadlines to account for logistic difficulties associated with internships.
