Finance and Accounting
The curriculum of our new ‘Master in Finance’ major gives Bachelor level graduates an opportunity to deepen their knowledge of finance and to develop skills and competencies within the investment process. The degree is available to both domestic and foreign students. A strong undergraduate background in Finance, and English language fluency, are the necessary prerequisites for success. In addition to mainstream subjects like portfolio construction, risk management and the valuation of financial instruments, students are also taught modern quantitative methods and learn about innovations in finance. We emphasise ethics and professional standards, legal and governance issues, and behavioural aspects of financial markets.
Mandatory courses are complemented by a selection of elective courses chosen by students according to their individual interests. The curriculum covers a significant number of topics from levels 2 and 3 of the CFA Program curriculum.
