DUAL DEGREE MASTER IN FINANCE + MASTER IN BUSINESS ANALYTICS & BIG DATA

The most in-demand candidates in the financial sector are those with data science, machine learning, and AI expertise. According to JP Morgan, analysts, portfolio managers, traders and chief investment officers all need to become familiar with machine learning techniques or risk being left behind. With this Dual Degree, you will gain a deeper understanding of financial markets while acquiring the analytical and data science skills needed to thrive in today’s competitive employment landscape. 

The Master in Finance will take you on a journey comprising three core financial topics. Beginning with corporate finance and private equity, you’ll take a closer look at key corporate principles and their application to mergers and acquisitions, debt and equity capital markets, and private equity and venture capital investments. Secondly, you’ll develop in-depth knowledge of financial statement analysis and economics for markets, investigating the main markets of equity, credit, fixed income, and derivatives, as well as the most successful investment strategies. Finally, you’ll explore the future of finance by delving into FinTech and learning the most important finance technologies, such as Python and MATLAB. What’s more, you will have the option of visiting the financial capitals of New York and London, undertaking an exchange at Frankfurt School of Finance and Management or London Business School, or participating in a microfinance project in Ghana.

The Master in Business Analytics & Big Data perfectly complements the Master in Finance to mold future financial professionals with the data science skills needed to drive data-powered decisions in any organization. The program is divided into four key knowledge areas: business transformation, data science, big data technologies, and professionals skills. Throughout the program, students will learn to extract relevant insights from data and apply advanced analytics and emerging technologies to improve business performance. You’ll put theory into practice and conduct real data analysis, as well as engage in interactive workshops, datathons, case studies, and group projects for global companies like IBM or Telefónica. 

Upon completion of the Dual Degree, you’ll be in a prime position to leverage your financial expertise and Big Data knowledge to launch your career in the finance sector. With demand for this holistic skill set showing no sign of slowing, now is the time to strengthen your profile and transform your career prospects.

  • I genuinely believe the Master In Finance  must be one of the most practical finance masters available, with professors that have years of professional experience as well as excellent pedagogical skills. This hands-on approach, together with the quite immense workload stands as paramount in order to be able to competitively join the work force in any of the world’s most prestigious financial hubs or investment banks.
