In the continuously evolving environment of the financial industry, it is increasingly important to possess the specific know-how and become acquainted with the best practices of the field. Now, more than ever, corporations require outstanding professionals.
The MBA Corporate Finance is an intensive 12-month international program taught entirely in English. It is designed to enhance management knowledge and skills, setting solid foundations for a career in the financial industry. Bologna Business School has a long-standing experience in research and education, as well as in training projects.
Participants will gain all the knowledge, competence, and strategic thinking needed to improve their international career in the financial sector thanks to a unique opportunity to mix knowledge, analytical approach and problem-solving skills.
The curriculum of the MBA Corporate Finance is divided in two main parts: General Management (core courses) and a Corporate Finance concentration aim at presenting the tools enabling the understanding of financial markets and financial instruments, as well as enrich participants with the expertise needed in the field of the financial industry and organizations.
Other program features are: internships, career development activities, and a business English course. Intensive Italian classes are offered free of charge to international participants who wish to improve their language skills during their stay in Italy. Italian classes are scheduled in September 2016, prior to the beginning of the MBA courses.
INTERNSHIP AND CAREER
Creating employability is one of the primary goals of the MBA Banking and Finance program. Therefore, interaction between theory and practice is an essential part of the curriculum: master lectures, testimonials, analysis of business cases, and in-company visits will take place throughout the year and will go side by side the core academic courses.
The program also includes a 500-hour internship scheduled in the last period of the program. Internships will take place in the banking and financial sector. The internship represents an opportunity for MBA participants to analyze real company problems, develop strategies, and elaborate action plans together with upper level managers.
