The Master in Finance programme delivers sound, practice-oriented knowledge in the area of finance, offering at the same time a high degree of flexibility in the choice of specialist courses. Currently, you are able to choose three specialist options from a total of eight, for example Asset Pricing & Derivatives, Advanced Real Estate Financing, Management Control, Financial Risk Management, Enterprise Risk Management, Asset Management & Alternative Assets, Private Wealth Management, Strategic Corporate Finance, allowing you to tailor the programme to meet your career objectives.
All courses are taught in English and in small groups to ensure high-quality learning. An integral part of the curriculum is a study experience abroad (third semester) at one of our renowned partner universities. In addition, you also have the opportunity to gain a dual degree (e.g. an MBA or a specialist Master from one of our partner universities).
In the Master in Finance you will take a critical look at and analyse financial issues and situations. Through the involvement of experts and managers from the financial sector, an integrated compulsory internship lasting at least six weeks in Germany or abroad and extra-curricular events such as workshops, corporate visits or presentations, you will learn to apply theoretical knowledge to practical settings. At the same time you will have the opportunity to extend your network to include our corporate partners, for example Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, and Rothschild, to name just a few.
