BUILD YOUR CAREER IN FINANCIAL ANALYSIS

The Advanced Masters in International Financial Analysis 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.
