What drives investment decisions of companies and investors and how should they finance their operations? Finance specialists know the answers.
By choosing the MSc Finance, you acquire knowledge, understanding, and skills required to analyse and evaluate real and complex financial problems of companies and institutions and to design solutions for these problems. This programme focuses on critical analysis and assessment of key issues in corporate finance and portfolio management, combining an academic perspective with a practical orientation.
You will specialise in a broad range of areas such as corporate valuation, derivatives, institutional investing, banking and insurance, corporate governance, responsible financing, and development finance.
You are also trained to develop the academic skills to analyse important questions in each of these areas. By analysing (applied) research questions in the field of finance you learn to analyse and solve complex financial problems encountered by companies, investors, governments and international organisations.
In addition, you will develop professional skills such as giving public presentations, working in teams and building computer models for business decisions.
The programme allows students to tailor their degree and the theoretical framework as they desire. I could select the courses that match my field of interest and that I believe prepare me best for my future career. The study gives me a well-defined picture of possibilities that I can pursue when searching for a suitable career. I joined the RISK investment team which helped me to gain more knowledge in investing and to meet new people. It is a great way to employ my theory in practice.
