At the forefront of educational innovation

Techniques include applied cases in class or at a business, mini-seminars, international workshops, career talks, distance learning, IT applications and experiential learning, such as business games and business plans.
A multi-sector approach to the financial environment
The skills they hone will allow students to work in financial careers that work on a micro-, meso- or macro-environmental scale: tertiary, industrial or financial firms; start-ups; micro-enterprises; SMEs; publicly listed companies; and national or supranational entities.
Financial expertise and working knowledge of financial tools with a strategic view
The MSc enables students to acquire expertise in financial practices and tools from two points of view: long-term financial management (financing structures and choices, business valuation, capital market financing, etc.) and asset management (financial analysis and financial diagnostic, familiarity with IT tools such as Reuters, VBA, R..., financial modelling) with corporate strategy as the centrepiece.
Extra-financial expertise that gives you a differentiating advantage
The ESG Engineering, Asset and Risk Management specialisation lets you acquire combined financial and extra-financial expertise, which is critical as financial careers transition from asset management to an increased emphasis on social issues in investment decisions and financing choices. All the training tracks in the MSc include courses and lectures that address investor responsibility and the inclusion of extra-financial and performance and impact factors in investing.
An international vision of business and social relations
The ability to spend several months abroad in M1 and a full English curriculum in M2 with professors, lecturers and a network of international partners will enable students to interact in a globalised economy with open-mindedness toward their local community and the wider world.
