  • The Quantitative Finance and Risk Management Curriculum provides you with a thorough command of analytical and statistical tools as applied to markets, financial institutions and the study of financial instruments, even complex ones. You will learn about the main areas of management of financial intermediaries (credit, finance, treasury, securities, organisation, planning and control), the management of financial investments and the measurement and management of financial risk, financial advice and insurance, supplementary pension schemes and the management of pension funds, the organisation of the internal processes and the administrative management of banks and financial intermediaries in general.
  • The Economics-QEM curriculum focuses on the in-depth study of two areas: economic issues in both the microeconomic and macroeconomic contexts; and quantitative methods for the theoretical and empirical analysis of these issues. If you choose this module, there is the opportunity to apply to participate in the Erasmus Mundus programme (QEM).
  • The Sustainable Finance Curriculum focuses on the field of finance with an accent on sustainability and the various opportunities that the ever increasing interest in the impact of climate change and the achievement of global development goals entail. The study plan ensures you acquire a command of the tools used to measure, understand and manage sustainability initiatives while taking into consideration both risks and opportunities as seen through the lense of individual institutions and of the broader economic and financial system.

Upon concluding your studies, you will possess an excellent comprehension of the relevant mathematical-statistical tools, a solid grounding in both theoretical and quantitative approaches, and a thorough familiarity with market regulation and legal frameworks. You will also be equipped to carry out economic, financial and political-economic analysis and to apply various theoretical, methodological and modelling approaches in both academic research and the professional world. In particular, you will be ready to analyse contemporary society in order to seek solutions to pressing socio-economic problems in a dynamic way with a focus on innovation in the contexts of economics, finance and adaptation to climate change.
