Master in Finance

The goal of our programme is to educate economic professionals to have a global competitive edge in finance, in particular in financial analysis and risk management. Our graduate students are capable of complex and independent financial thinking, managing and analysing the financial processes of the economy both at the macro and micro level. The main focus of our programme is to provide a high level of professional standards in investment analysis, portfolio management, corporate and bank treasury and risk management.

For the above-mentioned purposes, we have been striving to cover the requirements of the international Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and Financial Risk Manager (FRM) in the development of the course structure and curricula. As a consequence, our students upon graduation will also have the knowledge to successfully pass CFA / FRM exams. This feature of our training is unique in the Hungarian higher education market, and it is also rare in an international setting.

Our program is accredited by the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP, the FRM certification provider) and by CFA Institute (the CFA certification provider) as well.
