MSc in Finance – founded in 2006 in Grenoble

Launched in 2006, GGSB’s MSc in Finance is delivered in Grenoble and London. 

The program covers the fundamentals of finance, as well as advanced topics in corporate finance, financial management, and financial markets.

Its aim is to provide students with strong technical and analytical skills in the principles and application of finance, as well as a good sector knowledge, and a multicultural exposure. The programme includes electives in Corporate Finance, Market Finance, Islamic Finance and Micro Finance.

The program also provides an excellent preparation to the Chartered Financial Analysts® (CFA) exams, as it is based on the CFA Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK).

Taught in English and on a full-time basis, the academic course-work year (September-June) is followed by a second period allotted solely to the final Master’s project.

Bloomberg partnership – Trading floor on campus

Grenoble’s MSc in Finance students benefit from state of art facilities, such as a trading floor set up on campus thanks to a partnership with Bloomberg, which offers students real-life financial situations via Bloomberg’s financial software tools.

Judith Bouvard, Dean of GGSB, said:
“High-quality Finance training is a distinguishing competitive advantage of the leading business schools worldwide. Grenoble Graduate School of Business has been recognized for the quality and excellence of its MSc in Finance thanks to its faculty with hands-on international corporate experience in the field of finance and facilities such as the trading floor on campus, its multi-cultural environment and an innovative pedagogy.

The program is also offered in London, one of the world’s major financial centers and will soon be offered also in Singapore.
