The MFin International Finance programme benefits from our considerable strength in finance where staff from applied and theoretical finance disciplines have been brought together in the same School. Read more

Why Dundee

The MFin International Finance programme benefits from our considerable strength in finance where staff from applied and theoretical finance disciplines have been brought together in the same School.

The MFin International Finance programme is a ‘skills’ based finance degree that contains 8 finance modules and a short focused finance based business report. The structure of the report has been developed following feedback from employers who indicate that they prefer graduates who are able to write concisely, accurately and clearly in a focused report rather than write in the style of a lengthy and less focused dissertation.

The programme begins with a two week foundation programme where students become familiar with a range of concepts in business statistics, economics and finance. The programme helps students to understand how the University operates and how to make the most of the range of student services that are freely available. The foundation programme importantly introduces you to your fellow students who will become a major part of your learning experience at Dundee and will continue to be part of your network of friends and business connections after you graduate.

Off-Campus Learning Events: The programme includes off campus learning events embedded in the modules of some of the modules. These events aim to extend your leaning skills in ways that are directly relevant to the pathway and your personal development. These off campus events are one or two days in length and the cost of the transport, event and any necessary accommodation is covered by the MSc programme. At present there are off campus events embedded in the finance and banking pathways. More off campus events are being arranged and further events are being developed to begin this year.

Urban Experience Event: The MSc programme places considerable importance on ‘team building’ and understanding the role that international and domestic cultural variation plays in the workings of firms, and product and employment markets. These issues are addressed through a unique ‘Urban Experience’ event that helps team building and the development of learning skills. Business themes are also explored in the event.

Distinguished Visitor Series: A feature of the programme is the Distinguished Visitor and Enterprise Gym Lecture Series. Distinguished practitioners in the field are invited to the University to hold seminars highlighting critical aspects of business, finance, banking, management, marketing and human resource management. It offers students a unique opportunity to meet with business leaders and explore current issues with them.

The programme is focused clearly on the applied and theoretical aspects of finance so as to develop you for a career in the finance sector. The inclusion of a shorter finance report allows the programme to expand the opportunity for you to undertake more skills based modules that will improve your career prospects.

In the modern world finance takes an ever increasing role in business, development and the economy. The MFin International Finance programme provides you with the skills and training to play an important role in the finance sector and to develop a career in finance. To achieve this the programme provides you with the right mix of applied and theoretical skills to both understand the issues facing firms and how to deal with these issues.

This course is developed for students who have completed their undergraduate study and are now looking to develop their finance related skills so as to pursue a successful career in the finance sector.

We provide a fresh approach to International Finance that is suitable if you have studied economics, business management or accountancy before or if you are new to the subject. Around half of the students on the programme have a business background while the rest of the students come from a very wide range of non-business backgrounds. The programme has been designed with these students with non-business backgrounds in mind while still challenging students whose first degree has been a business related subject.

Teaching focuses on the applied and real world aspects of finance. The programme is delivered mostly within a framework of lectures, workshops and tutorials although other methods of teaching are offered on modules when they aid in understanding and learning.

The HEC Paris MSc in International Finance (MIF) program caters for highly-motivated top achieving graduates looking to succeed in a career in finance and consulting. Read more
The HEC Paris MSc in International Finance (MIF) program caters for highly-motivated top achieving graduates looking to succeed in a career in finance and consulting. The program has a strong analytical focus yet is accessible from either business and finance (business track) or economics, math, physics, engineering (accelerated track) backgrounds.

FLEXIBLE CURRICULUM

A ‘tailor-designing’ approach towards education is at the core of how we design programs at HEC Paris. This shows in at least two respects of the HEC Paris MSc International Finance curriculum (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/One-Year-MSc-MS-Programs/MSc-International-Finance/Program-Details#block-21071):

> What courses you take during the first semester depends on what you have done before joining HEC Paris. If you have already covered basic financial accounting, investment theory and corporate finance, you will start finance classes at advanced level (business track). If you have not done so, you will start at a more basic level but have significantly more class hours at an accelerated pace so as to enable you to cover the same material at the end (accelerated track)
> The second semester is comprised of more than 30 electives (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/One-Year-MSc-MS-Programs/MSc-International-Finance/Program-Details#block-34760), which you can choose as you see fit: you are free to choose all corporate finance classes, all capital markets or a mix of the two. You may also decide to choose an elective about corporate strategy or macroeconomics.

BALANCE BETWEEN THEORY AND PRACTICE

The number of hours spent in the classroom by HEC MIF graduates significantly exceeds the international standards. Around half of that time will be spent in front of world class researchers (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/One-Year-MSc-MS-Programs/MSc-International-Finance/Program-Details#block-21085), teaching you state-of-the-art knowledge. The other half will be spent in front of top-notch practitioners. The latter is one of many ways in which the learning experience at HEC Paris is different. The reason why we feel it is important to complement theoretical teaching by top researchers with practitioners lectures is that we have learned it is giving our graduates a small "extra edge" compared to graduates of other institutions. The more competitive the environment you are in, the more important having this extra edge is.

STRONG AND COHESIVE PEER GROUP

Who your peers are matters: for the quality of your learning experience, for the perception by potential employers and for the value of your network after you graduate. This is why academic performance is at the top of our admission criteria. But academic performance is not enough: smart, ambitious individuals will underperform if they do not cooperate. We strongly emphasize group cohesion and encourage it any way we can. For instance:

> Honours are granted on the basis of absolute GPA and not class percentile so as to make sure that no HEC MIF student can benefit from underperformance by one of his or her classmates
> A study trip is organized the 3rd week of the program with all HEC finance students participating and interaction for both professional and non-professional activities

LIFE LONG TIES

We are proud of the fact that ties built on campus with both professors and peers carry on after students graduate and become alumni. Alumni get directly involved in coaching the "new generation" of HEC MIF students and making sure they achieve the same success as past students. A few examples:

> Career and job training workshops the first week of the program - http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/One-Year-MSc-MS-Programs/MSc-International-Finance/Career-Paths#block-35012
> More than 250 participants in the Thursday night formal networking event of the 2014 London study trip… and many more at the less formal Friday night HEC Finance pub crawl: a unique opportunity to get privilegded access to young professionals from bulge bracket banks!
> Finance event organized the 4th week of September

INTERNATIONAL DIVERSITY

With 29 different nationalities making up the class of 2014 (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/One-Year-MSc-MS-Programs/MSc-International-Finance/Meet-the-Students#block-21087), the International Finance program is enriching on a cultural level as well. Working with so many different nationalities can be highly educational and rewarding and is a true highlight of the program for many. London is the main hub for HEC MIF graduates in terms of placement even though we also have alumni working in Continental Europe, Asia, Americas, and Middle East.

A CORE OF COMMON VALUES

Last but not least, we believe that values matter. Given various unsavory episodes during the crisis, this is even more important for a finance program than for any other program. Our values can be seen in a variety of different ways:

> How we select students: no matter how good or how strong your file is, if we catch you lying or cheating in any way during the admission process, you are out! No second chance…
> Ethics classes: in collaboration with the CFA Institute (the HEC MIF is a CFA partner program https://www.cfainstitute.org/Pages/index.aspx), we included an ethics seminar and an ethics class in our curriculum years before the crisis started.

A WORLD-RENOWNED PROGRAM

The Financial Times (http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-finance-pre-experience-2015) has ranked the HEC Paris MSc International Finance number one pre-experience global master in finance worldwide in 2016 and for the sixth consecutive year (see the article http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/News/2016-06-20-HEC-Paris-Masters-in-Finance-ranked-number-1-worldwide-by-the-Financial-Times).

The MSc Marketing and International Finance programme benefits from our considerable strengths in marketing and finance.

The programme is a ‘skills’ based degree containing 8 marketing and finance modules and a short focused business report. The structure of the report has been developed following feedback from employers who indicate that they prefer graduates who are able to write concisely, accurately and clearly in a focused report rather than write in the style of a lengthy and less focused dissertation.

The programme begins with a two week foundation programme where students become familiar with a range of concepts in business, statistics, economics and finance. The programme helps students to understand how the University operates and how to make the most of the range of student services that are freely available. The foundation programme importantly introduces you to your fellow students who will become a major part of your learning experience at Dundee and will continue to be part of your network of friends and business connections after you graduate.

Off-Campus Learning Events: The programme includes off campus learning events embedded in the modules of some of the modules. These events aim to extend your leaning skills in ways that are directly relevant to the pathway and your personal development. These off campus events are one or two days in length and the cost of the transport, event and any necessary accommodation is covered by the MSc programme. At present there are off campus events embedded in the marketing, finance and banking pathways. More off campus events are being arranged and further events are being developed to begin this year.

Urban Experience Event: The MSc programme places considerable importance on ‘team building’ and understanding the role that international and domestic cultural variation plays in the workings of firms, and product and employment markets. These issues are addressed through a unique ‘Urban Experience’ event that helps team building and the development of learning skills. Business themes are also explored in the event

Distinguished Visitor Series: A feature of the programme is the Distinguished Visitor and Enterprise Gym Lecture Series. Distinguished practitioners in the field are invited to the University to hold seminars highlighting critical aspects of business, finance, banking, management, marketing and human resource management. It offers students a unique opportunity to meet with business leaders and explore current issues with them.

The programme is focused clearly on the applied and theoretical aspects of marketing and finance so as to develop you for a marketing career in the finance sector. The inclusion of a shorter business report allows the programme to expand the opportunity for you to undertake more skills based modules that will improve your career prospects.

In the modern world marketing and finance takes an ever increasing role in business, development and the economy. The MSc Marketing and International Finance programme provides you with the skills and training to play an important role in a career in marketing and finance. To achieve this the programme provides you with the right mix of applied and theoretical skills to both understand the issues facing firms and how to deal with these issues.

This course is developed for students who have completed their undergraduate study and are now looking to develop their marketing and finance related skills so as to pursue a successful career in marketing.

We provide a fresh approach to marketing and finance that is suitable if you have already studied economics, business management or accountancy or if you are new to the subject. Around half of the students on the programme have a business background while the rest of the students come from a very wide range of non-business backgrounds. The programme has been designed with these students with non-business backgrounds in mind while still challenging students whose first degree has been a business related subject.

What you'll study

Teaching focuses on the applied and real world aspects of marketing and finance. The programme is delivered mostly within a framework of lectures, workshops and tutorials although other methods of teaching are offered on modules when they aid in understanding and learning.
