MSc International Business: Marketing-Finance (full-time)

Finance often focuses on the ‘technical’ pre-conditions for the success of an organisation or financial product and ignores the ‘target’ from a marketing perspective, which focuses on stakeholder needs. By bringing the finance and marketing approaches together, this unique track shows how you can create an environment in which both financial performance and customer value can be integrated.

Outstanding resources

As a student following the Marketing-Finance track, you will benefit from the outstanding academic and teaching resources available at two of Maastricht University’s departments. Through a dynamic mix of theoretical courses and empirical projects, you will explore areas including financial decision-making, product development, relationship marketing and shareholder value.

You will also follow a practical skills training course, and the option to do an internship gives you the possibility of applying the theory you have learned and gain valuable work experience.

Marketing-Finance is a 1-year, full-time programme and is taught entirely in English. Graduates will a master's degree in International Business with a specialisation in Marketing-Finance.

What will you learn?

In small classes, you will gain a thorough theoretical understanding of all aspects of marketing and finance. This will enable you to develop innovative financial products and assess the risks of these products in relation to market returns. Through case studies and an optional internship, you will be able to put your knowledge into practice.

At the end of the track, you will be able to:


• understand and analyse the financial side of product development
• market products and translate the benefits into added financial value
