Présentation du programme

The Finance and Risk Management programme trains specialists in the finance industry and financial geopolitics. Most Master’s in Finance courses offer either training in the financial markets or corporate finance.

The programme has been designed to fill a niche – in the finance industry – with an emphasis on operational and behavioural issues as well as the strategic location of financial vehicles. The program also looks at the interaction between different financial institutions, with a focus on the emergence of Fintech, Cyber Finance and changes in decision-maker behaviour.

Once they have completed the program, students will understand the different business models and be prepared for employment in a variety of financial sectors: banks, funds, hedge funds, insurance and the strategic consultancy sector. 

You can join the regular track or the short track of the programme.
