The goal of our programme is to educate economists to have a global competitive edge in finance, particularly 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. Our students will also have the knowledge to successfully pass CFA / FRM exams upon graduation. The 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.
