M.A. HSG in Banking and Finance


Course Description

With a challenging curriculum, the Master’s Programme in Banking and Finance (MBF) is one of the leading international finance programmes. In the fields of Financial Markets, Financial Institutions, Corporate Finance and Quantitative Methods, the programme offers high-quality education in both theory and application. It is designed to train our students in the critical reflection of various concepts and approaches prevailing in financial theory and practice. The high quality in teaching and education was confirmed by the Financial Times Ranking 2016 (8th place among more than 200 business schools ranked worldwide).

Curriculum: contents and structure

The core studies are made up of compulsory courses and electives, including a research seminar.

Compulsory subjects
In the first semester of the programme, students attend the compulsory courses Financial Markets, Financial Institutions, and Quantitative Methods. In these challenging courses the essential knowledge of finance will be acquired.

Core electives
In the second and third semesters, students may design their individual curriculum according to their preferences and can choose several core electives in order to focus on financial markets, corporate finance, institutions or methods. They can freely combine courses from our long list of core electives.

Research seminar
In the research seminar, students are required to write a seminar paper with a research focus and they have to present their findings. In combination with the Master’s thesis, the MBF therefore provides a thorough preparation for a Ph.D.

Independent electives
Independent electives create additional choices: students may either attend further core electives of the MBF or courses of other Master’s programmes. A third option is to attend courses of the School of Management.
