Learning outcome targets

The Finance course teaches operational skills based on a cross-disciplinary base of economics and management. It is broken down into a split M1 (Evry and Psud) which provides the main tools, concepts and analytical frameworks within the field of finance (corporate and financial markets) to develop skills in risk analysis, assessment and management which leads to three main routes covering the professions of financing and strategy for banks (BF path) and companies (SIF path), as well as risk and asset management (GRA).
The three courses are clearly differentiated in terms of professional opportunities and have specific teaching in the second year, whereas the first year of the Master's programme provides students with a common base of knowledge.
The courses are enriched through the use of innovative teaching tools, by the support of teams of teacher-researchers who still work in laboratories and by the offer of complementary certifications of a professional nature.
