At the forefront of Finance Education
Programme Director Dr Jens Martin: "We at the Master of International Finance strive to be at the forefront of education in Finance. We see technological changes are disrupting the finance industry and we research how these changes work, how they affect the finance sector of the future. To equip our students with the necessary tools and understanding to successfully face these disruptions we are expanding our curriculum with FinTech courses”.
We welcome applicants from all over the world; more than 15 countries are represented in our current intake. Combined with a mix of full-time students and working part-timers, and an international faculty, this makes for an exciting melting pot of cultures, professional backgrounds and academic skills. What will you bring to the table?
To help develop your skills as a finance specialist, we keep class sizes deliberately small. Professors can focus keenly on individual students, personally guiding them towards their specific goals, while learners bounce off one another during interactive seminars and lectures. Learning is a dialogue, not a monologue.
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.
