Description of the programme
In the course of the four semesters you will develop a profound understanding of international finance and deal with the particularities of exchange rates, parities, the effects of trade restrictions as well as relevant stock markets and the international debt crisis. You will practice the use of financial modelling techniques to analyse data, conduct research and make forecasts. In addition, you will acquire knowledge of complex options and futures, mergers, acquisitions and restructurings, as well as the necessary skills to evaluate them.
During the integrated internship, the business project and a business simulation game, you will apply the knowledge you have acquired in practice and gain valuable work experience. In the “Finance and Business Club”, a student initiative at CBS, you can also establish contacts with renowned company representatives. The international orientation of the course, English as the language of instruction and soft-skill courses complement the holistic and targeted preparation of your career in internationally operating companies.
