Program description

The complex financial times we live in demand greater modelling techniques and a deeper understanding of financial data. The Master in Finance at the Barcelona GSE is designed to meet these challenges, as it is a comprehensive program that covers all the important areas of finance and prepares you for the most demanding jobs in banking, consulting and asset management.

This program is unique because it offers better training on quantitative topics than most masters in finance, and has a broader focus than the typical master in quantitative finance.

Our graduates excel in the ability to design and implement complex financial models; understand the theory and bring it to the data. They outclass their peers with a more qualitative background (like an MBA), because they can work in a wider range of positions (risk management, derivatives trading, venture capital, wealth management, etc.). At the same time, our graduates are more versatile than students with a pure quantitative background, because they can reach beyond purely technical jobs.

The program offers interactive classes, intensive use of advanced statistical and mathematical software, in-depth case studies, presentations by finance professionals, and the support of an experienced team of career services officers.

A key advantage of our Master in Finance is that students can benefit from GSE top faculty teaching in a wide range of courses in their field of expertise. In particular, students with an interest in quantitative techniques can take electives in advanced econometric methods, optimization techniques, advanced programming, and machine learning, while students who are interested in economics topics can choose among the advanced economics courses in macroeconomics, monetary policy and exchange rates.

Degree

Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a Master Degree in Economics and Finance awarded jointly with the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. The degree requires the successful completion of 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits of graduate courses (6 credits are equivalent to a 40 hour course), some compulsory and some elective. The students' final program must be discussed with and approved by the Master Director.

OVERVIEW

The top financial brands are heading towards innovation. The digital revolution in financial services just started and no one want to get in disadvantage.

According to Accenture, “Digital disruption has the potential to shrink the role and relevance of today’s banks, and simultaneously help them create better, faster, cheaper services that make them an even more essential part of everyday life for institutions and individuals.” But also, new start-ups are accelerating this transformation through agile open structures and a fresh vision that empower collaboration and decentralization of structures.

Such innovation can disrupt existing industry structures and blur industry boundaries, facilitate strategic disintermediation, revolutionize how firms create and deliver products and services, create significant privacy, regulatory and law-enforcement challenges, provide new gateways for entrepreneurship, and seed opportunities for inclusive growth.

This program will provide you with the central innovations of FinTech like cryptocurrencies, blockchain, digital advisory and trading systems, artificial intelligence and machine learning, peer-to-peer lending, equity crowdfunding and mobile payment systems.

The skills that you gain will qualify you for a diverse range of job roles across the Fintech industry. A new wave of FinTech job positions are waiting for those who are ready, from disrupting start-ups projects to large finance and insurance corporations that are transforming their own ecosystems.

Barcelona Technology School ensures all the participants a professional experience during the Master.
