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

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.

The courses derive from pre-existing courses at the university, with intensive courses in French. The degree is devoted to the training of students in the use of mathematical models in economics and finance: mathematical economics, strategic analysis, decision theory, stochastic models, mathematical finance and optimization models. The training is built around a large spectrum of courses, which aim to give the knowledge for the modelization of economic and financial problems, for mathematical formalization and tools for the numerical solutions. The new models in finance, economics and decision theory need a coherent training in these fields. Around 50 students are welcomed each year. Admission is made on the basis of academic excellence.

Unique experience First of all: because our students develop a strong feeling of belonging to a community, the community of ‘Mibers’. They feel that MIBE is a label, a distinctive mark: a nice one, to wear and recognise. Secondly: because of the unique atmosphere of the University of Pavia, one of the oldest universities in Europe (founded in 1361).The university is also well-known for its students’ accommodation system consisting of 20 students’ residences (the so called “collegi”), where thousands of students live, study and play sports. Furthermore, Pavia is a lovely small medieval town, which feeds that special sense of community, but at the same time offers the opportunity to reach a metropolis like Milan in a very short time (only 35 kilometres away, with an excellent train connection). Career opportunities and job profile MIBE is for aspiring leaders only, with an interest in pursuing careers as manager or entrepreneur and showing strong international attitude. Careers taken up by MIBERS include, but are not limited to: export manager, business development manager, analyst of international markets, innovation manager, IT manager / CIO, web marketing manager, management consultant, and – of course – international entrepreneur. Because of their distinctive profile, MIBE students have acquired a kind of “trademark” in the job market and they are highly saught by companies with a international vocation.
