COURSE PROFILE

This one year intensive programme, taught entirely in English by finance experts and seasoned professionals, is organised in collaboration with the University of Westminster in London. The course is designed to provide individuals with an expertise in International Finance, thereby enabling them to pursue careers in any area of the finance profession. Whilst having a strong disciplinary base in International Finance, its scope is such that graduates will be able to work with specialists in wider areas and to present analysis and conclusions of complex subjects to non-specialists. It will provide students with advanced analytical skills at a postgraduate level. The Master of Science in International Finance illustrates CERAM Sophia Antipolis’ desire to focus on the fast moving specialist arena of international finance. Our objective is to provide top quality teaching and training in the areas of country risk analysis, portfolio management, and international financial strategy. All teaching staff on the programme posses a double edged profile combining strong academic credentials with seasoned practical expertise in the field of finance. This offers students a realistic perspective on the working world of finance as well as a solid academic background. In that regard the newly-created Chair in Global Finance plays a key role in the promotion of international finance at CERAM Sophia Antipolis. All course descriptions are available on : www.globalfinance.org/MScIF
