Programme

The academic year of the Master in International Finance (MIF) programme starts the last week of August and ends around mid-June. The year is divided into two semesters, and each semester consists of two main blocks. Each of these blocks takes 6 weeks of classes, one study week, and one exam week.

The course programme is followed by a master thesis project and potentially an internship.

In January, students embark on a one-week international study trip. In past years, the study trip took place in Cape Town, South Africa.

Full-time or part-time

The programme allows you to study full-time (12 months), part-time (18-24 months) for working students. The courses are conducted in English and typically scheduled during weekdays (Monday-Thursday): 3-4 evenings (full-time) or 1-2 evenings (part-time).
