About

Organizations of all sizes and industries, from multinationals to SMEs, governmental agencies and nonprofit institutions, are involved with and affected by the financial markets. The Finance programme is offered at the University of Oulu.

Asset managers and financial analysts must navigate volatile markets. Investment bankers find solutions for firms’ and nonprofits’ funding requirements. Central banks and governmental agencies may be directly involved in financial markets and oversee market regulation. The financial world of today demands expert knowledge with a global perspective – you should demand the same of your education.

The Oulu Business School of the University of Oulu organises a two-year Master´s programme in Finance (MF) that will provide students with the skills and knowledge required by the various organisations that operate in the modern financial world.
Master's Programme

The MF Program focuses on understanding the financial markets and financial market participants. Students will develop the skills necessary to analyze the interactions between the markets and participants. The program provides a strong foundation in the theoretical and empirical tools of modern finance. Topics covered include asset pricing, corporate finance, portfolio management and risk management. The approach is analytical and methodologically oriented.

Students in MF gain special insight into the areas of individual investor behavior and the management of alternative assets. The program provides students with the knowledge and skills required to work in specialist and executive positions in the financial sector. As a minimum precondition, an applicant needs to have an appropriate Bachelor's (or similar) degree. The quantitative nature of the MF ideally suits those who have studied business, economics, natural sciences or engineering. The program also gives a good basis for further academic studies at the postgraduate level.
