CFA track

Students interested in earning the CFA charter go through intensive preparation for the CFA Level I and II exams during the Spring semesters with their objective being to pass these examinations by the end of the semester (May-June). The MSc curriculum covers 100% of the CFA CBOK (Candidates Body of Knowledge).

This track also offers an introduction for Level 3, which brings students closer towards earning the CFA Charter – Chartered Financial Analyst. Students sit for the official CFA Level I examination at the end of May (3 other dates are possible) and the CFA Level II examination in June of the following year. Real Estate & Wealth Management Track: As a niche market, the real estate sector requires very specific skills and uses financial tools applied to real estate valuations and project engineering.

Real Estate & Wealth Management track

Wealth creation has become a major challenge for countries, companies, and individuals. Managing portfolios and risks properly to satisfy clients’ concerns requires relevant skills in many areas. The REWM track centres on the entrepreneur and family wealth management with specific focus placed on transition and estate planning. In the asset allocation process, the programme concentrates on the real estate and all its features to understand perfectly this challenging, high-yield investment.

This programme aims to train students in real estate and wealth management based on the techniques used by asset management professionals.

In terms of knowledge and skills, students will acquire at the end of the programme:

  • A strong knowledge of private wealth management
  • A perfect understanding of the real estate market
  • Relevant skills in all aspects of an investment decision process (planning, legal and tax impacts, performance)
  • Ability to solve complex problems

They will also have the opportunity to meet and collaborate with professionals in the financial (Euronext, HSBC, etc.) and the real estate sectors (Tristan Capital Partners, PWC Luxembourg, etc.)

Our approach includes participation from international, national and local actors in the wealth management and real estate industry.

Stories

Anqi YANG

2013-14

The first year of my MSc in Global Management was a year of building the fundamentals skills necessary for almost every aspect of my professional life. Courses like Quantitative Methods gave me skills related to a several fields of study, like economics and finance, helping me to read and analyze data in a more objective way. Geopolitics provided me with a comprehensive vision of world trade. Also, a full day’s work in an English-speaking environment strengthened my preparation for work in an international context. The courses were extremely useful and gave me confidence in my competences. What I also liked a lot is the diversity of teachers; they are from different countries, which really gives me a feeling of studying in an international school.

Romain PENNEL

2013-14

After an unusual study track, with a two-year high school diploma in Marketing and Trade, I chose to go abroad and complete a Bachelor in English. Graduated with a 3-year Bachelor degree, I followed the two-year MSc programme at NEOMA Business School. That was the perfect solution for me, to be able to get an MSc degree. The first year at NEOMA BS prepared me to follow the courses in the MSc in Marketing French Excellence, and face professional challenges in the international business arena.
