Finance, Master of Science (Economics and Business Administration) (2 years)

The Master’s Degree Programme in Finance is a two-year, full-time programme. The core coursework consists of compulsory finance courses taken during the first three academic semesters. The compulsory courses provide strong knowledge in the areas of corporate finance, financial markets, investments, financial analysis, risk management, and corporate social responsibility. These courses develop and broaden the students’ knowledge of modern financial theory, while also providing a practical understanding of financial markets.

Across both years of the programme, students can select from wide-range of optional courses, which are partly multidisciplinary with elements from economics, financial accounting, statistics, programming, fintech and financial mathematics. They also offer the possibility for specialization in specific areas of finance based on their own interests and career objectives. Specializations are mainly focused on:

  1. Banking and International Finance,
  2. Corporate Finance and Financial Analysis,
  3. Data Analytics and Fintech, and
  4. Financial Markets and Asset Management

Courses consist of lectures, group work, students’ presentations, case studies, presentations by guest lecturers from the financial industry and final exams. Master’s degree students are expected to complete courses worth approximately 30 ECTS credits each semester, as an active fulltime student. During the second year of their studies, students pursue a rigorous individual research project that culminates in the writing of a Master’s Thesis.
