In the wake of the arrival of several London-based financial firms in Paris, the launch of MSc International Finance at EMLV is an additional opportunity for job-seeking students and graduates in financial services.
The new international program delivers a thorough understanding of corporate strategy and financial markets and an insight into Financial valuation, Mergers & Acquisitions, Portfolio diversification, Financial instruments, Digital currencies and Blockchain technologies.
It will help equip students with the tools and processes required to intervene in international finance operations. They will be able to participate in operational cases interacting directly with companies’ financial teams, and to understand strategic decisions and financial options.
Now, with Paris becoming Europe’s post-Brexit trading hub, the international financial services firms will welcome the candidates who will be able to implement corporate strategies to cope with financial challenges.
Companies will continue to hire profiles such as account managers, brokers, financial analysts, portfolio managers, chief financial officers, who are required to support organisations in their financial and strategic evolutions.
Multidisciplinary courses and international approach, learning keys to companies growth
The MSc is based on the existing synergies between the schools of the Pôle Léonard de Vinci: ESILV (Engineering School) and EMLV (Business school). Financial engineering and management of financial assets are growth accelerators for companies.
