PROGRAMME OVERVIEW
Would you like to become an economist, work in institutions supporting market regulators, become a risk manager or specialise in economic-financial consultancy?

The Quantitative Finance and Risk Management Curriculum (Study > Study Plan > Enrolled in the 2023/2024 academic year > Quantitative Finance and Risk Management) provides you with a thorough command of analytical and statistical tools as applied to markets, financial institutions and the study of financial instruments, even complex ones. You will learn about the main areas of management of financial intermediaries (credit, finance, treasury, securities, organisation, planning and control), the management of financial investments and the measurement and management of financial risk, financial advice and insurance, supplementary pension schemes and the management of pension funds, the organisation of the internal processes and the administrative management of banks and financial intermediaries in general.

The Sustainable Finance Curriculum (Study > Study Plan > Enrolled in the 2023/2024 academic year > Sustainable Finance) focuses on the field of finance with an accent on sustainability and the various opportunities that the ever increasing interest in the impact of climate change and the achievement of global development goals entail. The study plan ensures you acquire a command of the tools used to measure, understand and manage sustainability initiatives while taking into consideration both risks and opportunities as seen through the lense of individual institutions and of the broader economic and financial system.

Upon concluding your studies, you will possess an excellent comprehension of the relevant mathematical-statistical tools, a solid grounding in both theoretical and quantitative approaches, and a thorough familiarity with market regulation and legal frameworks. You will also be equipped to carry out economic, financial and political-economic analysis and to apply various theoretical, methodological and modelling approaches in both academic research and the professional world. In particular, you will be ready to analyse contemporary society in order to seek solutions to pressing socio-economic problems in a dynamic way with a focus on innovation in the contexts of economics, finance and adaptation to climate change.
