Testimonials

"This will be the first time I am studying abroad and IÉSEG was the best choice for me to expand my knowledge in finance both for the location of the campus and from the point of view of my career. It offers me the chance to attend classes that have real practical value because of the access to the Bloomberg financial markets lab. It will also help me prepare for professional certifications, which are my next steps in my career. Apart from that, at IÉSEG I am confident I will have a multi-cultural experience because we will be a mixed group from all the continents of the globe."

Gabriela TEISU, Romania, MFIN 2015

"I chose IÉSEG for many reasons. I know that IÉSEG provides an excellent education for its students, as evidenced by its EQUIS and AACSB accreditations. I was also confident in the quality of education at IÉSEG, as it is a partner school of the Ateneo de Manila University, my alma mater in the Philippines. Moreover, I was very much attracted to IÉSEG’s MSc in Finance course, which includes Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters training — these modules, along with the other MSc in Finance classes, are perfect for the kind of career I am interested in pursuing (research or portfolio management). What’s more, the IÉSEG community is full of international students and faculty, and for me, studying in an international setting is key to being a world-class individual. Finally, what makes IÉSEG the perfect choice is that it has a campus right in Paris, so studying here means that you will live at the heart of one of the most beautiful cities — and countries! — in the world."

Marguerite Amanda TY, Philippines, MFIN 2015

"The reason why I choose the MSc in Finance at IESEG School of Management is because I wanted a school that would give me significant exposure to the international business. With the opening of its Paris campus in La Defense IÉSEG is directly connected with the world’s leading enterprises. Success in a global economic environment requires the combination of academic competence and an active professional network; by studying in an international business hub we will have the invaluable opportunity to make those professional connections on a daily basis. I am excited to join IÉSEG and look forward to benefiting from its future growth while also giving back in whatever possible way I can."

Ricardo Chavez, El Salvador, MFIN 2015

The Finance Phd program at Tilburg University has two phases. Read more

MSc specialization in Finance

The Finance Phd program at Tilburg University has two phases: a preparatory Research Master combining intensive coursework and research that culminates in the writing of a Research Master Thesis (which could later be built out into a chapter of the PhD thesis); and an advanced phase in which students devote all their time to research, at the end of which they complete their PhD dissertation. Most Research Master students are funded by grants given by CentER. PhD students are employees of the University and receive a gross salary of 83000.

Students who have not done graduate work in Finance or Economics before joining the program complete the Research Master in two years. The first year consists of Economics and Econometrics courses preparing the student to specialized work in Finance. The second year is devoted to the Finance Core (four advanced courses in Asset Pricing and Corporate Finance), a few elective courses, and the writing of a Master Thesis. Students who have done graduate work before joining the program are admitted directly in the second year.

After completing the Research Master, students are eligible to start the PhD phase of the program, which typically lasts three years. Supervision during this phase is very close: students often co-author no less than two papers with their supervisors, and write at least one single-author paper under their supervisor’s guidance. Our seminar series (the department hosts over 30 seminars a year with leading scholars from the US and Europe) exposes students to cutting-edge research in all areas of Finance.

Students in the second year of the PhD spend one semester visiting a top University abroad, funded by CentER. These visits provide an early exposure to the international academic scene, create new opportunities of co-authorship, and enrich the students’ network of contacts. Our students have visited Harvard, Yale, London Business School, Caltech, among others.

Most of our PhDs find jobs in Academia. We have a very successful history of placements at top universities in Europe and America, among them Chicago GBS, Toronto Rotman, Cambridge, HEC Paris. Our graduates also show an excellent record of publications, many of them publishing chapters of their theses in top journals shortly after graduation.

Career Perspective MSc specialization in Finance

If you follow the Research Master's program in Business - be it accounting, finance, information management, marketing, operations research, or organization and strategy - you are prepared to continue in a PhD program. More than 75% of the graduates continue at a PhD position at either Tilburg University or another university. 25% of the graduates start a professional career, mostly in the consultancy or financial sector.

The Research Master's program in Business in combination with the subsequent PhD studies enable our students to find jobs at universities around the world, at research institutes or in the banking and consultancy sectors.

In the PhD phase, most accepted PhD students become university employees earning a gross salary over more than Euro 85000 over three years and are granted pension rights.

It is an intensive course combining advanced study and research, tailored for people with one year or less of work experience who intend to go on to work for industry. It places particular emphasis on economic coverage of financial themes, beginning from the institutional background, moving on to careful consideration of how observed institutions should be modelled, and ending by relating existing models to data and discussing how these models should be improved when they do not fit the data.

See the website http://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/courses/directory/ececmpmfe

Course detail

On completion of the M.Phil degree students should have:

1. acquired an advanced technical training in microeconomics, and econometrics;

4. acquired experience and guidance in formulating a realistic research topic and prepared written work to a strict timetable;
5. acquired sufficient knowledge and understanding of advanced economics to proceed to a career as a professional economist in industry or to a research degree.

Format

Each module consists of eighteen hours of lectures, together with supporting classes.

Requirements:

- To attend the preparatory course in mathematics and statistics
- Take six compulsory 18-hour modules:
- Take two specialist modules, only one of which may be taken from the options from either the MPhil in Economics or from the Mathematics Department
- Write a dissertation of up to 10,000 words

Assessment

Students submit a 10,000 word dissertation at the end of July worth 20% of the final overall mark.

Students are examined on 8 coursework modules in May/June worth 80% of the final overall mark.

There is an internal examination on the material covered in the preparatory course which is assessed on a pass/fail basis. Classes in problem sets take place for compulsory modules - one problem set for each of the compulsory modules is formally assessed. Mid-course examinations in microeconomics I, econometric methods and Finance I and II take place in January; marks are recorded but do not count towards the final degree result. Each student receives 2 hours of supervision for the dissertation component of the MPhil in Finance and Economics.

Continuing

Although the MPhil in Finance and Economics is designed for students who wish to obtain a one-year master's qualification before leaving academic economics, it will still be possible for students to continue onto the PhD programme. To do this, students will be expected to perform at a standard that is considered satisfactory by the Admissions Committee and subject to finding a suitable supervisor.

The MSc in Finance is a one-year, full-time programme. It is both academically challenging, with input from world-leading academics, and practically focused, giving you the opportunity to develop the confidence, knowledge and skills needed for a successful career in finance.

This programme provides excellent training for those who wish to pursue doctoral level research with a view to an academic or research-orientated career.

Distinctive features:

Structure

The first semester provides you with a sound theoretical foundation in finance as well as the quantitative and research skills required for a successful career in finance.

The second semester builds heavily on the knowledge and skills acquired during the first semester. In particular, the second semester enables you to either acquire advanced knowledge of both corporate finance and financial derivatives or to specialise in another area of finance. The second semester is organised in such a way to combine flexibility (via the optional modules) with rigour (via the core modules).

In the first semester you will take four core modules.

In semester two, you will take two further core modules along with two optional modules. The optional modules provide progression from those delivered in the first semester and demonstrate the increasing demands placed on you.

Upon successful completion of the taught stage you will progress to the dissertation.

The dissertation is designed to enable you to apply the knowledge, understanding and skills learnt in the taught modules to individual independent research under academic supervision.

Core modules:

Finance and Investment
Quantitative Methods
Research Topics in Finance
Empirical Finance
Market Structure and Trading Systems
Research Methods in Finance
Dissertation

Optional modules:

Financial Derivatives
Asset Pricing
International Banking
International Finance
Mathematical Finance
Marketing of Financial Services
Investment and Electronic Trading
Corporate Finance

Methods of teaching

Most modules involve a mixture of lectures and small group teaching (called classes, seminars, workshops or tutorials).

In a lecture, the lecturer will mainly be giving an overview of a particular aspect of the module content (as well as opportunities for you to ask questions and be reflective), while in classes and workshops you will have an opportunity to practice techniques, discuss ideas, apply concepts and consolidate your understanding in the topic

Support

You will be allocated a personal tutor at the beginning of your studies. Normally, your personal tutor will teach on your own degree course and you will keep the same personal tutor throughout your course.

Your personal tutor will be able to give you advice on academic issues, including module choice and assessment. If you encounter any problems which affect your studies, your personal tutor should always be your first point of contact; she/he will be able to put you in touch with the wide range of expert student support services provided by the University and the Students' Union as appropriate. You are required to meet with your personal tutor at three points during each academic year but you are also encouraged to get in touch with them at any other point if you need help or advice.

For day-to-day information, the staff of our Postgraduate Student Hub are available, in person, by telephone or by email, from 8am to 6pm each weekday during term time to answer your questions.

Feedback

We’ll provide you with regular feedback on your work. This comes in a variety of formats including oral feedback, personalised feedback on written work, and generic written feedback.

You will be given general feedback in relation to examinations following all examination periods and you will be able to discuss your overall performance with your personal tutor.

When undertaking the dissertation/project you are expected to meet regularly with your supervisor to review progress and discuss any questions. Your supervisor will be able to provide feedback on your research plan and drafts of your work as you progress.

Assessment

Assessment methods vary from module to module but, across your degree scheme as a whole, you can expect a mixture of exams, coursework, essays, practical work, presentations, and individual and group projects.
