The Master program is tailored towards graduates wishing to obtain a strong specialization in International Finance and Economics while aiming for a career in international finance and/or development cooperations.
Ideally, applicants should have a first degree in business or economics, and some work or internship experience. Our program is a full-time, three semester program.
The Master program provides you with a strong foundation in the principles and practice of international finance and economics, with the latest concepts, knowledge and skills, as well as with the analytical tools and perspectives which form the optimal basis for qualified managerial decision making. The program will also enhance your leadership skills as well as your abilities for creative teamwork.
This program features high academic standards with a strong leaning towards practical application.
The teaching at GSO is well known for its dual emphasis on solid academic scholarship and real world relevance. Our faculty members eagerly pursue research in their own fields of interest, and in addition, act as consultants and advisers to the industry, to government departments and committees, and, in some cases, hold directorships in a wide range of organisations. These activities help to maintain the practical relevance of the scholastic teaching and research.
The style of lecture tends to be participative, and classes frequently incorporate case analysis and discussions. There will also be group work sessions and opportunities for supervised project work, field investigations and visits, as well as individual research. Small classes allow for close personal contacts.
The program consists of six modules:
- Strategic Management
- International Economics
- International Corporate Finance
- International Investment
- Applied Research
Students can stress their fields of interest by choosing courses from a broad range of electives in all fields.
