Course Introduction

Students who take the MSc in Finance will develop a sound understanding of theories of finance and of the workings of financial markets, and will acquire the main analytical tools for a career in finance or further research at PhD level. They will become acquainted with the main issues and methods in Corporate Finance, Risk Management, Banking, and Financial Econometrics and will be able to employ them in a professional capacity. The programme will present Finance as a scientific discipline with a rigorous methodology, but at the same time will describe the way financial markets and institutions actually work in a variety of contexts. The comparative approach of the courses will prove attractive to students from both emerging and advanced economies.
