The Master in Finance is divided into three terms and four key areas of knowledge and skills for professionals in finance. This one-year program based in Madrid, offers two different intake moments (in April and in September), running until July of the following calendar year. It is made up of engaging face-to-face classes, group meetings and presentations, hands-on simulations and in-person debates, access to resources such as Trading Lab and the IE Library, classes at our headquarters in the fast-paced financial center of Madrid, and much more.
Our Master in Finance has four specialization tracks:
Once you finish this track, you will have a thorough understanding of Key Corporate Finance, Project Finance, Financial Modelling and corporate action principles and tools applied in Mergers and Acquisitions, Debt and Equity Capital Markets, Leveraged Finance and Investments in private and public securities.
This track dives into Global Markets. It follows an in-depth and practical knowledge approach to Portfolio Management, while also exploring the ins and outs of the asset management industry, including: Value Investing; Environmental, Social, and Governance Investing; Exchange Traded Funds; and Hedge Funds. Finally, the Equity and Credit Research course provides both the analytical framework and background required to analyze and value listed companies.
Alternative Investments is an emerging asset class, with a strong focus on real estate. This track allows you to not only understand the basis of the main alternative investments such as Real Estate Investments, Venture Capital and Commodities, but also deal with and manage them as an asset class.
This is an emerging track at the intersection of Big Data, analytics tools and finance. You’ll learn not only how to apply algorithms to trading, but also to build and test quantitative equity strategies. What’s more, you’ll explore key finance analytics tools.
At the IE Trading Lab you’ll have access to resources ranging from financial, market, business news, economic, security pricing, brokerage research, portfolio risk and performance analytics. We also have various analytics features to analyze securities including—but not limited to— stocks, bonds, commodities, options and futures, and currencies. We currently offer the Bloomberg Assessment Test if you’re interested in demonstrating your abilities with this information platform, which is key for any professional willing to work in financial markets.
