Control disruptive and strategic financial management.

Programme presentation 

The International Financial Analysis programme trains financial analysts with a 360° managerial perspective 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.

Programme highlights

  • Using inverted pedagogy for fundamental courses

Before the courses, students will acquire knowledge and skills through different tools and mediums: documents, e-learning, podcasts, and more. During the course period, they will apply the concepts and knowledge by reviewing problem-set solutions. This type of pedagogy encourages student interaction and cooperation.

  • A pedagogy founded on “Learning by doing” to master different forms of expertise

Emphasising experience-based learning, this approach helps develop the ability to learn and grow in uncertain environments. This learning combines methods, knowledge and experience through simulations, serious game, case studies, roleplaying, hackathon, etc.

  • Corporate meetings

Conferences are organised in collaboration with companies and professionals. They deal with subjects such as financial communication, individual shareholding, FinTech, etc. These meetings offer an opportunity to talk with conference speakers and listen to them share their experiences.

At the end of the programme and after a validation of the ongoing assessment and professional thesis, the Level-7 RNCP of International Financial Analyst degree is awarded to the participants.
