Program Description

The Master’s Program in Financial Economics is designed to meet the needs of professionals for a theoretical background as well as analytical methods in the solution of financial and economic problems.The unprecedented development of financial markets, financial institutions and financial instruments in addition to the integration of financial markets and institutions are undoubtedly some of the most important developments that have left their mark on the world’s economy in the last two decades.

Increasing uncertainty in interest rates and exchange rates have generated greater risks and speeded up financial innovation. As a result, we have witnessed diversification into newly emerged and complicated financial markets and instruments. The integration and the autonomous maturing of financial markets profoundly influenced the working of international economies.

Consequently, all of these developments mean that financial activities have to be closely investigated. This necessity can best be addressed with a program which brings the theory of economics, the theory of finance and quantitative methods together in an balanced way.
