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).

Program overview

The master of science in computational finance is designed for students interested in computational or quantitative finance careers in banking, finance, and a growing number of additional industries. Professionals in these fields use their strengths in business, modeling, and data analysis to understand and use complex financial models, often involving differential and stochastic calculus.

The program addresses a vital and growing career field, reaching beyond banking and finance. Typical job titles include risk analyst, research associate, quantitative analyst, quantitative structured credit analyst, credit risk analyst, quantitative investment analyst, quantitative strategist, data analyst, senior data analyst, fixed income quantitative analyst, and financial engineer. Computational finance is an excellent career option for technically-oriented professionals in the fields of business, math, engineering, economics, statistics, and computer science. Programming knowledge is highly preferred.

Plan of study

The curriculum offers an integration of finance, mathematics, and computing. The required mathematics courses have substantial financial content and the experiential computational finance course, which students take during the summer, makes use of skills learned in the mathematics, analytics, and finance courses taken up to that point. The program has a strong multidisciplinary nature and combines the expertise of four of RIT's colleges. The program is a full-time, 17-month curriculum beginning exclusively in the fall. The program ends with a required non-credit comprehensive exam based on the courses completed by the student.

Internships

Newcastle Business School has a long and hugely successful record in placing students in internships across the UK and, indeed, all over the world. We know from experience that internships bring a range of benefits – they make students more employable because they can talk about actually doing business rather than just studying it, and they tend to get better final results because they have a real context for their study of business and find inspiration for their Master’s project in the work environment. At the same time students provide a real benefit to the host companies who appreciate fresh insights to their business and gain a greater appreciation of the benefits that graduates can bring to their organisation.

Business Clinic

Newcastle Business School operates its own Business Clinic to provide consultancy services to businesses and organisations in the region. Working full-time in the clinic offers the chance to explore a variety of businesses and help them embrace new opportunities. Whether assisting a business to develop an internet marketing strategy or investigating international market opportunities for a new product, you will develop skills in quickly getting to understand a business issue, work in teams, research the issues and prepare and present a professional set of recommendations. This is an amazing opportunity to assimilate skills developed in the classroom.

Learning Experience

The MSc in International Finance and Investment is designed to meet the needs of students who are at the beginning of a career in the field of finance. The aim of the course is to enable you to develop an integrated and critically aware understanding of international investment and finance and thus expand your career options by combining the knowledge from previous degree with a specialised Masters qualification.

The course will equip you with the specialised skills required to implement finance and econometric theory in areas such as quantitative analysis, financial research, international financial markets and institutions, investment, derivatives and risk management. The course is designed to build on the transferable skills important for employment in the areas of business finance, banking, financial markets, investment and quantitative finance research.

Assessment forms an integral part of your learning experience. You will be assessed through essays, presentations and exams. You will also complete a 15,000 word dissertation. This is supported significantly through the core, non-credit bearing Dissertation Preparation and Research Methods module, and by an academic supervisor with relevant expertise in the subject. Alternatively you could complete a Masters’ Consultancy Project. This would give you a thorough introduction to essential management concepts, tools, functions and disciplines enabling you to demonstrate relevant knowledge and understanding of organisations, the external context in which they operate and how they are managed.

Learning environment

For core modules, you will be taught in lectures, workshops and computer labs environments where the application of technology is very much at the centre of your learning experience. The Developing Global Management Competencies module exposes you to various MS Office applications, ARIS Express Business Process Modelling, MS Project, various SAS applications and Google Analytics.

Study Abroad

One of the key challenges facing any student planning to undertake a business-related degree is how to compete in the job market with business graduates around the world who are also trying to ignite their business career. We know from experience and talking to employers that international awareness is a key differentiator.

Many of our students have already taken the first step by travelling hundreds or thousands of miles to study in an unfamiliar environment. However the international exchange option takes that to the next level. We are developing exchange opportunities in Asia, Europe and South America that will give students the prospect to create a truly unique selling proposition to future employers.

Students spend one semester studying business (taught and assessed in English) in another international domain. In some cases there will be an opening for basic level study of the language and culture of the host region.

Learning Experience

The MSc in International Finance and Investment is designed to meet the needs of students who are at the beginning of a career in the field of finance.

Introduction

This course will provide the students with an opportunity to learn and understand how business is conducted in the international arena, in particular focusing on the development of managerial skills necessary to survive and thrive in an interconnected world. It provides a solid foundation for a highly successful career by developing problem-solving and critical thinking abilities within the context of trading across national boundaries.
The MSc International Business offers a choice of pathways, allowing students to specialise in marketing or human resource management. This flexible format allows students to select a specialisation to suit career aspirations. This means you can graduate with your specialism in Human Resource Management or Marketing reflected on your degree certificate.
By the end of this course, students have a nuanced understanding of operating across economies, currencies and regulatory frameworks. In addition, they are better equipped to engage with stakeholders from different cultures and work effectively in a team that is scattered in different geographic regions.

What is International Business?

International Business is the specialisation of core business subjects, adding theoretical and practical dimensions relevant to operating in an increasingly globalised economy. Foundation content, from accountancy and finance to strategic management, is explored in the context of international regulatory frameworks and business practices. Analytical and problem-solving skills are developed from multi-cultural and multi-national perspectives. Students are exposed to the challenges and opportunities that result from globalisation.
An MSc International Business from Stirling is designed to develop deep understanding of different approaches to managing businesses across national boundaries and create awareness of new trading blocs and the pressures they inflict on businesses and managers. Postgraduate education in International Business equips graduates to work in roles that require an understanding of how businesses are financed and taxed in different jurisdictions as well as other legislative issues that must be taken into account. A strong emphasis on ethical and environmental issues of relevance to commercial operators with international interests is a major strength of this course.
The International Business with Human Resource Management pathway is ideally suited to individuals who wish to blend their interests in general business strategy with the management of people.
The International Business with Marketing pathway enables students to develop marketing expertise that will enable them to thrive in a global business context.

Program overview

Management of environmental, health and safety issues has changed significantly in the past twenty years. The emergence of voluntary standards and codes of conduct, including international standards, coupled with the need to manage costs and limited resources has resulted in a trend to move beyond regulatory compliance. Now, companies work toward sustainability through the use of integrated environmental, health and safety management systems, which are woven into key business processes. Although they are distinct disciplines, environmental management, occupational health, and workplace safety share many technical, regulatory, and organizational characteristics. Today's professionals now need to be educated in all three areas.

Graduates are employed by Fortune 100 companies, environmental, health and safety consultancies, universities, and government agencies such as the EPA, OSHA, and NYSDEC.

Plan of study

The MS degree in environmental, health and safety management provides students with a solid foundation in the managerial aspects of developing and implementing environmental, health and safety management systems that can move organizations toward a more sustainable and socially responsible future. In addition, students gain a solid technical foundation in air emissions, wastewater, solid and hazardous waste, occupational safety and occupational health (industrial hygiene). Elements of sustainability are integrated into most of the core courses and some electives

The program consists of 33 credit hours and may be completed entirely through online learning, or via a combination of online and traditional on-campus courses. The curriculum consists of core courses, professional electives, and a choice of a graduate thesis, project, or exam.

Program overview

The master of science in health systems administration provides strategic skills for today’s health care management professionals. Now, as never before, health care is rapidly transforming. The pace of technology and innovation are changing how, when, and where healthcare is provided, and who is providing it. Concurrently, health care consumers have high expectations for quality and responsiveness to their needs—delivered in a cost-effective manner. To provide these strategic skills, this post-graduate degree builds on a foundation of courses in policy and law formation, healthcare economics, finance, insurance reform, innovation, information technology, systems, operations and leadership. The course work is built on a foundation of skills and knowledge sets identified and endorsed by national health care leadership organizations. Graduates of the program are prepared to assume clinical and business leadership roles across the diverse healthcare industry.
