Deepen your knowledge of financial markets and financial analysis in a unique environment.
The operation of financial markets is one of the most complex topics of study due to what underlies them: interactions among human beings, with all of their conceptions and misconceptions about the reactions of other human beings.
This one-year programme provides you with the theoretical background and the advanced mathematical and empirical tools required in advanced financial analysis.
The education aims to provide students with advanced analytical skills suitable to support the financial operations of firms and financial institutions in general. The curriculum is especially designed to match the requirements faced by subjects operating in international markets, taking into account the need for continuous renewal and the constant development of the business environment.
All courses in the programme are given in English. Due to the fact that JIBS has an exchange programme including about 180 partner universities, and that the programme is open to students from around the world, the courses have a diverse international participation of students. This international atmosphere contributes to a broad perspective of the issues discussed in class.
This programme is supported by faculty with substantial experience of dealing with financial markets and strong research records in methods required for financial analysis. JIBS has very active research in the fields of international finance, financial economics and statistics, corporate governance, and time series econometrics, with a considerable number of publications within these areas in internationally-renown refereed journals.
1 year, 60 credits. Master of Science with a major in Business Administration.
