  • Introduction

The MSc in Finance and Risk Management (CLM FiRM) offers its prospective students an advanced education in finance, quantitative risk management, actuarial sciences, banking and financial accounting.

The course is a combination of economic theory for finance with quantitative methods (probability theory, statistics, numerical analysis and computational methods) to quantify and manage risk arising from financial, economic and insurance applications.

The MSc mix theory and practice, academic lectures and interaction with finance and insurance practitioners and empirical sessions.

In the first year, with the common track, you will acquire an in-depth grounding with core courses from corporate finance,  financial markets and institutions, financial accouning, quantitative and computational finance, quantitative risk management, financial economics and econometrics.

In the second year, you can deepen your knowledge and  tailor the degree to your goals both by taking one of the three offered tracks – corporate finance and banking, insurance and risk management, quantitative finance - and by moving forward one of the three Double Degrees opportunities.
