Master of Science in Finance
Taught jointly with the Universities of Geneva and Neuchâtel, the Master of Science in Finance aims to give students excellent quantitative knowledge enabling them to understand the complicated working of financial institutions.
In addition to providing strong theoretical bases, the aim of this training is to teach the participants to apply the know-how implicit in their qualifications.
The Master of Science in Finance at our Universities is a two years programme, 120 ECTS, constructed around four semesters. During the first semester we consolidate the previous bachelor knowledge with the core courses in finance. The next two semesters are dedicated to a specialisation, either in wealth management (Geneva), in financial engineering (Lausanne), or in financial analysis preparing for the CFA (Neuchâtel).
The fourth semester is dedicated to the writing of a Master thesis, which may be done during an internship with a local or international financial institution.
-- Teaching Lauguage: English in Lausanne and Neuchâtel, French in Geneva
-- Examinations: Examinations on all subjects taught are held at the end of each semester.
-- Mobility: During their third semester, students may study in a university recognised by UNIL, under an exchange program. They may get a maximum of 30 credits in another institution.
The prior authorisation of the Master's Committee is required for the recognition of credits earned abroad.
