About

ISEG is the portuguese business school with the longest tradition and experience in teaching Finance. Since 1911 ISEG has accompanied the evolution of the markets, of the economy, and of the scientific knowledge in the field of Finance. ISEG has graduated many of the great portuguese business leaders, as well as reknowned political and economic decision-makers.

The Masters in Finance at ISEG offers a solid education in the three fundamental pillars of the discipline: Corporate Finance, Financial Investments, and Derivatives. Students enrolled in the program also have the opportunity to choose from a wide list of electives, ranging from banking and insurance, to international financial markets, or from behavioral finance to real options.

ISEG is a unique school in the diversity of its faculty. In this masters students have the chance to establish contact with professors with PhDs from universities as different and prestigious as the London Business School, Manchester Business School, Carnegie-Mellon University, London School of Economics, or Stockholm School of Economics. The Masters in Finance puts together the professional experience of some of its instructors with the scientific rigor which underlies the research of others.

The Masters in Finance also brings in well known foreign professors, such as Dean Paxson or Paolo Colla. ISEG is also unique and richer in its intersection of professors of management, economics, other social sciences, and quantitative methods. Students in the Masters in Finance benefit from this diversity and from a clear investment of the whole school in its teaching.

In accordance to the complexities of today's world and to the nature of the discipline, the Masters in Finance is offered exclusively in English this year. In this way, the masters brings students closer to the professional life that expects them, and also opens its doors to a more international student body.
