Description

Through this programme you will develop a deep understanding of the structure and workings of financial markets and financial institutions. Building on relevant quantitative and IT skills, you will learn to master state-of-the-art theoretical and empirical models for investment decisions and for the pricing and risk management of stocks, bonds, and derivative securities.

You will be trained in analysing stocks, bonds, and derivative securities using prevalent models for pricing and risk management. Investors form portfolios of different securities, and you will learn analytical tools for selecting portfolios optimally. The risk-return trade-off is essential to investments, and modern finance focuses on identifying relevant risk measures and the risk premia investors can obtain by exposing themselves to the various sources of risk. You will see theoretical models of the risk-return trade-off, but also empirical studies of the observed risk-return relation.

Career Opportunities

We expect the majority of graduates from the concentration in Finance and Investments to find employment in banks, pension funds, mutual funds, insurance companies, and other companies and institutions operating in financial markets. The graduates are particularly qualified for positions demanding both excellent analytical skills and a solid understanding of the securities and players in financial markets. This is the case for many jobs in financial market analysis, capital management, risk management, investment banking, and financial asset trading.  The graduates should also be attractive for central banks, regulatory authorities, and international organisations within finance and economics such as the International Monetary Fund, the Bank for International Settlements, or the European Union.
