The Master in international Finance has been the most enriching educational program I have done so far. It has offered me the highest teaching standards through a broad range of proffessionals of the finance world that have provided me with not only a very strong theoretical basis, but also have transmitted me all their experience, in order to enhance my skills to be highly competitive in the finance area. It is also a very remarkable fact the efficiency and the helpfulness of the staff.
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 study and develop strong friendships with classmates whose friendships 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.
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.
