MSc in Finance is a full-time, one-year programme that provides a highly advanced qualification in the finance field plus one-year for research and writing a dissertation. It is designed for students who intend to pursue a career in the financial services industry or in the field of corporate finance.
This programme gives you a strong background in the theoretical underpinnings of finance, while offering intensive applied training aimed at developing skills for active interaction in the finance world.
MSc in Finance at IBS will enhance your career prospects, give you exposure to a faculty with a worldwide reputation, and provide you with a cutting - edge knowledge of finance in classes that teach you how to apply what you have learned.
The emphasis of the programme is specialization and flexibility. Half of the courses are electives, which allows students to better tailor the programme to their own career objectives.
Our graduates have earned an excellent reputation in the corporate sector for their outstanding quantitative and technical skills.
A key feature of our Master's in Finance is the opportunity it gives you to have real contact with the finance industry:
Each course contains several illustrative examples from the real business world presented as cases, research findings, and small projects to undertake. This approach allows students to apply the concepts, instruments and analytical skills they have learned in a relevant, hands-on way.
Finance Manager Agenda
Throughout the programme, you will have the chance to interact regularly with reputed practitioners who will offer their vision and experience of the field in a series of workshops aimed at discussing and analyzing the different areas of the financial industry such as investment banking, trading, financial innovation, the role of being a CFO of an international listed company, risk management and real state.
Visiting the Real World of Finance
To prepare participants for the global business arena, there is a scheduled trip to Madrid in the second semester to visit companies and institutions in the local financial industry.
The Microstructure and Trading Program at University of Delaware includes a visit to firms in the New York financial district.
The Final Project
The compulsory final project is the ultimate challenge of the IBS Master's in Finance. It gives you the opportunity to apply your recently-acquired knowledge to a real financial issue, situation or innovation. The project may be driven by a request made by a corporation, centred on an issue chosen by the student him or herself, or be based on the consulting or research activities of the faculty.
