What determines stock prices? What’s the best way to finance a particular company? And how can the financial markets and financial regulations help a society as a whole to prosper? The Finance Master’s programme explores these questions through real-life business cases, many of which are led by people who work in the financial industry themselves.

Besides this Msc Finance programme two intensive programmes of 84 ec each are offered to talented and ambitious students: the Duisenberg Honours Programme Finance and Technology and the Duisenberg Honours Programme in Quantitative Risk Management.
