Master of Finance Concentration Development Finance

Frankfurt School of Finance & Management
Campus Full time 24 months October 2018 Germany Frankfurt

The Frankfurt School Master of Finance Concentration Development Finance prepares recent graduates of social sciences, economics and related disciplines for a career in international development work. [+]

As recent developments clearly demonstrate, if you're going to excel in today's challenging environment, sound specialist knowledge must be supplemented by the ability to think long-term and take a broad view. Financial institutions of all types – banks, insurers, private equity firms, hedge funds, micro-finance and development banks, etc. – will only achieve sustained success if their employees are capable of embracing the complex interdependencies of the modern world in a responsible and proactive way.

Our Master of Finance programme challenges the way you think about and apply finance.

Here's how it works:

The first semester teaches you the 'principles of finance'. It lays the first, generalist, building blocks en route to mastering the craft of finance. Regardless of where you see yourself in future – as a stockbroker or investment banker, a private asset manager or an auditor, a micro-finance banker or financial advisor to an NGO – the first semester provides you with the basic toolkit you will need to succeed in your professional endeavors. Two-thirds of the courses in the second semester then cover what we deem to be the 'essentials of finance'. They convey the skills and knowledge that we believe no Frankfurt School Master of Finance graduate can afford to be without. With all this learning under your belt, you are then free to choose from a wide range of optional courses (electives). Either pick-and-choose as you like, or opt for one of our four future-oriented focus areas (concentrations).... [-]
