Guaranteeing the technical requirements of finance and ensuring  the necessary perspective of its social responsibility are our two main challenges. Financial institutions are becoming increasingly sensitive to this; for students, it is almost a pre-requisite. The team of teacher-researchers supporting Kedge Master’s students make it their biggest concern. We provide out students with a wide-ranging and solid academic background to make them able to cover any position in the following industries : finance, capital and investment banks, insurance companies, investment funds, retail banks and asset management. Armed with these skills and knowledge, students will be immediately operational to start their careers in financial institutions.
