Program Description

Master in Corporate Finance

LUISS Business School

In these days, the management of financial resources and the relationship with financial markets and investors are critical and fundamental objectives of firms, financial institutions, and other organizations.

The financial system dimensions and relevance have increased as well as its complexity: new financial instruments, investors, and operators determine market conditions and access to liquidity.

The strategic role of Corporate Finance has, therefore, become increasingly important due to the dominance of finance on the productive investment. Managers have to pay stronger attention to raising capital, financial planning, risk management and investment activities. Financial education is undergoing critical changes in the global economy since practitioners have to face new demands and challenges and become true business partners at decision-making levels.

Our programme aims to prepare you to deal with increasingly complex financial challenges providing participants with solid technical knowledge and skills, as well as the transversal competencies which are required to manage complex financial situations in an international environment. Financial education is no longer offering to learn to enhance knowledge but it is about promoting direct impact in support of a change.

We will support you to acquire a thorough knowledge of the conceptual and empirical tools to cope with the emerging challenges to turn them into new opportunities.


Students begin with the Preparatory and General Management courses and then focus on the core courses and different lab activities, in order to guarantee a gradual professional and personal growth for each student. In the final months of the programme, the Field Project will allow students to put their knowledge into practice. The programme lasts 12 months composed of 8 months lectures based followed by a 4-month period of Field Project.
