Companies need determined and flexible managers, equipped to take on greater responsibilities in direct contact with the other areas of the organization. Key features of this new profile for Financial Directors include their capacity for planning, negotiation, and risk analysis in an economic context that is as unpredictable as the one we live in.

With the Master in Finance, you will acquire all the technical knowledge of finance and its various specialist areas, developing executive competences in the field of decision-making that will multiply your professional opportunities.
