Finance

The Luxembourg School of Finance (LSF) is the Department of Finance of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance of the University of Luxembourg. The LSF’s mission is to offer education programs and conduct academic research in finance at the highest level. It strives to attract outstanding individuals as students and faculty and to create an environment of excellence.

Since its inception in 2003, over 250 students of over 30 nationalities have completed the MSc in Banking and Finance program. Offered on a one-year full-time or two-year part-time basis, the program is ideal for students having a previous degree in finance or related field, as well as for professionals seeking to obtain a greater theoretical foundation in finance to support their career objectives.

The MSc in Banking and Finance represents exceptional value. In addition to a comprehensive curriculum, it features renowned professors from both the LSF and partner universities such as INSEAD and the New York University (NYU) Stern School of Business. A tailor-made Residential Academic Week at NYU Stern School of Business is an important part of the program and greatly enjoyed by students.

The LSF is closely tied to the Luxembourg Financial Centre, with on-going partnerships in research, internships and student placement, and events of academic and professional interest. The Financial Centre participates in the LSF’s governance and supports the LSF in many different forms.

About

Entrepreneurship has become an increasingly popular activity that can be evidenced in different spheres of the economy and society. More commonly, entrepreneurial behaviors are associated with new start-up ventures where risk, ownership, and management are combined to exploit new market or technological opportunities.
