DescriptionFinancial markets are vital to the current and future stability of firms, government bodies, nations – and of course to individuals and to society as a whole. The MSc in Finance will provide you with the knowledge and competencies you need to work in the world of international finance.
The MSc in Finance fuses rigorous academic research with applied skills and competencies. Focusing on global finance, the programme will prepare you for today’s highly developed and integrated financial markets, in which graduates with degrees in finance are increasingly sought at the highest international level.
Financial decisions are to a large extent based on empirical observations. Thus acquiring the skills to apply econometric methods is part of our programme. In our experience, students gain much more from their studies when they have an interest in quantitative methods.
Unique Programme StructureThe MSc in Finance is a unique programme that allows you to work with internationally respected academic staff in an international environment. In the first year the programme addresses the key concepts of asset pricing, corporate finance, and bank management so as to familiarise you with the challenges of the financial markets. In the third semester, you can choose elective courses at Aarhus University, AU Summer University or (as an exchange student) at one of 300 partner universities abroad. You also have the possibility to combine electives with an internship to strengthen your practical skill-set. Finally, the fourth semester is devoted to the master’s thesis.
Quality Teaching in an Informal SettingThe MSc in Finance is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal and egalitarian learning environment. Students are always welcome to approach the teaching staff, and they are expected to participate actively in the classroom. Collaborating in small groups on projects gives students the chance to make the most of the international student environment.
Social and Academic ActivitiesAarhus BSS hosts a rich and varied programme of activities for you as a student, both study-related and social. Our many student associations host events ranging from lectures and company events to career days and sports days, Friday bars and celebrations, so there is plenty of scope for meeting and networking with like-minded people, discovering new areas of academic interest, and socialising with fellow students.
CareersThe MSc in Finance is an excellent foundation for many positions within international finance. Previous graduates have embarked on careers in financial institutions, regulatory bodies, consulting businesses, and finance departments in non-financial companies.
