Programme presentation 

The International Financial Analysis programme trains financial analysts on international finance who are able to function in unstable and complex environments

The techniques taught in the programme explain and clarify the reality of various businesses in order to establish a rigorous financial assessment framework and trace value creation for banks, investors, manufacturers and the company itself.

The pedagogy employs a comprehensive interactive blend of professors and professionals with permanent simulations and role-playing scenarios.

Lastly, because the corporate world must adapt to changes and risks, the programme includes extra-financial elements and soft skills that round out the financial analysis curriculum.
