Master of Science in Money and Finance

Goethe University Frankfurt

Program Description

Master of Science in Money and Finance

Goethe University Frankfurt

The study programme, which is taught in English, is an innovative combination of the subjects of money and macroeconomics on the one hand and finance on the other and therefore links economic policy with the financial sector. It prepares for challenging careers in the banking and insurance sector as well as with financial service providers.

The course is held in the House of Finance and this, as well as the Frankfurt’s unique status as one of the world’s leading financial centres, offers an ideal link to a business in practice.

The study programme aims to teach the analytical and quantitative skills and knowledge necessary for challenging managerial careers in business enterprises. It also prepares students for a PhD degree on the path to a potential academic career. The content is taught at a high academic level and includes innovative concepts and methods. The teaching concept links intensive student support with independent academic work and on-going possibilities for contact with business in practice.
