The Master of Science in Finance and Banking is a two-year program of quantitative methods for finance, entirely taught in English and designed for students who wish to study mathematical and statistical techniques applied to financial markets.

For a close interaction with our students, we select a small group of highly talented and motivated students. Admission to the Master Program is subject to the possession of an undergraduate degree in: Economics, Business, Mathematics, Statistics, Engineering, Physics, or similar degrees.

Other backgrounds may also be acceptable, according to the student’s preparation in quantitative subjects and motivation to attend the course.

Thanks to agreements with strategic industrial partners (ARPM, Avantage Reply, CDP, Fitch Ratings, MathWorks, Morningstar, Thomson Reuters, Vigeo Eiris) our students have free access to extra services and data tools, to make their curriculum more attractive to the current standards of the labor market.

We involve our industrial partners with the program by organizing specific short courses and guest lectures. The partnerships give our students a competitive edge, providing them with a study process with dynamic interaction with advanced professional experiences.

Students of M.Sc. Finance and Banking have the possibility to participate in a Double Degree Program, spending the second year at the University of Gothenburg (Sweden).

Most of our students complete their studies on time and are employed in banks, trading houses, insurance companies, international agencies and institutions. Some of them continue their studies in qualified Ph.D. programs.
