Reviews

The opportunity to study here at IEB has been a very rewarding and valuable experience.It is a combination of the caliber of the professors, students and interactive class sessions and case studies. The professors are highly knowledgeable and experts in their field.
I have also been fortunate to develop strong friendships with classmates while studying which I will continue to value in the future. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning more in depth about the financial markets as well as the business culture of Spain.

Throughout the Master we were taught how to use Bloomberg. It has been a key tool to develop skills and knowledge in order to gain a better understanding of financial markets and provided us with access to an unlimited amount of information to carry out our assignments.

What I would highlight about this Master is the hard work. It is based on daily challenges in which we face new circumstances and have to deal with them. It reflects real life in which we must work hard and face different problems, not just academic, but also dealing and working with other people, or even handling new IT programs that are fundamental in finance, such as Bloomberg, Excel, R-Studio, Eviews and even a real life investing portfolio simulator.

I think the main objective of this Master is to prepare us for the real financial world.

I had been working in the finance sector for four years before I joined the IEB’s MSc in International Finance program, with the goal to refresh my knowledge and advance my career. And I must say that it was one of my best investments so far. The MSc curriculum had a very good balance between theory and practice and covered broad spectrum of financial topics giving a holistic view on the industry. At the same time, and via the case studies and the development of the final project, the program gave an opportunity to improve the practical skills that were of interests of individual students, in my case it was in the area of financial modelling. Overall it was a great experience that gave me fresh ideas and broadened my perspective. I strongly recommend it for both newly grads as well as professionals with some years of experience.

The Master

The Best Way of Learning

The methodology followed is highly practical, based on rigorous and up-to-date contents. Throughout the Master, students are offered examples of how to apply the theoretical concepts seen in class to the day- to-day financial world. In addition, for each study module, students have to carry out exercises, case studies and a group case presentation relating to the material covered.

Therefore, the theoretical classes will alternate with practical ones in which the students will also use the appropriate IT tools. IEB’s IT room and treasury desk, very similar to those found in any brokerage firm, allows students to put into practice their theoretical knowledge through the use of Bloomberg and real-time trading on IEB’s online portfolio simulation trading platform. Bloomberg is also proactively used by the teachers in class to show examples of the concepts taught.

Another factor that contributes to the practical nature of the Master is the fact that most of the professors are themselves highly respected financial professionals in their area of expertise.

Moreover, the Master aims to promote personal development and teamwork through group exercises, case studies and presentations.

Finally, the technical knowledge required from the students will also be tested throughout the Master via exams, exercises, case studies and research papers. All students are required to complete a compulsory Final Project, which they will be presenting in front of a jury panel, and in which they are expected to put into practice all the knowledge acquired throughout the programme.

An Outstanding Degree

The qualification obtained at the end of the programme is the Master in International Finance Degree. It is issued by the Academic Board of the IEB.

A diploma will also be issued by IEB’s Partners for each academic stay.

Facilities

Technology and IT: Highest Standard. The IEB has an IT room and Treasury Desk with 41 computers, of which 14 are Bloomberg Terminals.

There are also several IT posts with broadband WIFI Internet Access and one Bloomberg Terminal in the common areas. All lecture and study rooms have WIFI connection, infrastructure to connect computers and latest generation technology such as video projectors and financial information systems.

 Library and Study Room. The IEB has a Library and Study Room, where students can consult the relevant manuals to widen and consolidate the knowledge gained in class.

The textbooks, found in the library and available exclusively for the students, cover a wide range of topics including Derivatives, Technical and Quantitative Analysis, Portfolio Management, Risk Management, Securities Markets, Corporate Finance, Economics, Law and Emerging Markets. They also cover subjects of general interest within Law and Economics, such as Biographies and Statistics.

Treasury Desk. IEB has an IT room and Treasury Desk, similar to those found in Banks and Brokerage firms. The room has forty one computers and fourteen Bloomberg Terminals, through which students can access real time data and information provided by Bloomberg, Bridge, Visual Trader and Infobolsa.

Through these computers and Bloomberg Terminals students can access all the economic and financial data, as well as news, they need in order to follow financial markets daily, including, equity, fixed income, derivative, currency and money markets.
Many lectures throughout the Master also take place in this room. Professors like to use real-life up-to-date examples in their lectures, to illustrate the theoretical concepts, and to do so they use Bloomberg.

Finally, thanks to this access to real-time data and information, students not only are able to use the latest key information and knowledge for their practical coursework, but also, for the job interviews they start attending towards the end of the Master.

On-line Simulator. Another very attractive aspect of the programme is the ability for the students to use IEB’s Portfolio Management Simulator. The Simulator has access to real-time market data, as it is directly linked to this data via internet. This enables the students to manage and control the risk of the positions within their portfolio in a “real life” setting.

This simulation allows the students to experience hands on what it is like to invest and operate in international financial markets. In order for the students to really benefit and learn from this experience, the simulation is monitored and tutored by professional managers who help students along the way as well as assess their ability to manage the portfolio.

 Career Development Department. The IEB has a career development service which is available to all the students. The service actively seeks job offers, especially from companies with which IEB has signed cooperation agreements or that are partners or sponsors of our Institution.

The IEB has a powerful online tool which allows access through the Institution’s intranet to all the job offers that are regularly input into the system.

This tool also allows users to express their interest in any particular selection process. In addition, the system allows IEB staff to send personalized e-mails to any candidate whose profile matches a specific job offer. More information »
