Master and build upon a 360° vision of Finance

Programme presentation 

The 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.

The programme received the Finance Durable label in 2023 from the IFD and the Louis Bachelier Institute.

Evaluation procedures

The programme is recognised through a dual validation:

  • Ongoing assessment: evaluations conducted throughout the length of the programme in the form of individual or collective reports to be submitted
  • A professional thesis for the MS and a professional dissertation for the MSc: submission of a written document and an oral defence before a jury made up of an academic tutor and a company tutor

At the end of the programme and after a validation of the ongoing assessment and professional thesis, the Level-7 RNCP of “Analyste Financier Internatonal” degree is awarded to the participants.

If some modules were not validated and thus no credits were earned, the programme participant can redo the evaluation during a period set up for this purpose.
