2 tracks : Corporate Finance and Advisory & Equity Research and Investment Management

This MSc prepares you to be successful for an international career in finance – with a focus on investment management, analytical functions and research – and to study for the three CFA exams, as part of the curriculum.

Our program is designed to allow you to work either in the asset management industry or in an investment bank (M&A, ECM or DCM), a Private Equity fund or a Corporate Finance advisory boutique.

This program provides a theoretical foundation for a broad range of jobs: both in corporate (financial analysis, equities, corporate finance functions) and markets (quantitative skills, financial instruments, portfolios), while helping to maintain high ethical standards.
This MSc will equip you with the technical and transferable skills to be successful anywhere in the investment and financial industry, or in a corporate strategic function of a large company (finance, strategy); while helping you to prepare for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exams, as part of the curriculum.
This program will provide you an intellectual challenge, an opportunity to advance your skills in modelling, analyzing and thinking strategically.

The CFA® charter* is one of the highest distinctions you can earn in the finance profession. Success in the CFA program demonstrates a good command of generic financial concepts, good analytical skills, an ability to work hard and a sensitivity to business ethics; as a result, it is highly regarded by finance recruiters. It also serves as a differentiator in a finance recruitment processes (e.g. a level 1 candidacy is often required to apply to top jobs in I-banks and investment management firms).

*Track MSc Equity Research and Invesment Management only
