The Master in Finance Program

The Master in Finance is divided into three terms and four key areas of knowledge and skills for professionals in finance. It is delivered in two formats, so you can choose the option that best fits your lifestyle. Our full-time format is an immersive one-year program based in Madrid, with two different intake moments (in April and in September) and running until July of the following calendar year. Our part-time format, on the other hand, is a 22-month online program that includes three face-to-face periods in Madrid.
