FINANCE, THE LIFEBLOOD OF BUSINESS

Finance has always been at the heart of any business… and always will be. Sometimes the pace is fast, as in the 2008 financial crisis, sometimes it’s far too slow, as we are currently experiencing with low, if not negative interest rates threatening economic stagnation. Either way, business always needs the guidance of qualified finance experts.

MBA FINANCE is a Master in Business Administration for international students embarking on a career in finance.

Taught entirely in English by a team of finance professionals with many years of business experience, this diploma is recognised at the top level of the French National Register of Professional Qualifications (RNCP Level 1).

This MBA in Finance provides students with the theoretical tools required to master practical issues in the financial management of business entities anywhere in the world.

Courses relate to the subjects of finance, accounting, strategy and corporate governance.

Whilst attention is given to theory, primary emphasis is placed on analysis, making extensive use of open discussion and case studies to link theory to observable examples.
Taking a Finance MBA facilitates promotion in a student’s current career path, a change of industry, or maybe even a complete change of career.

Many students are looking to develop entrepreneurial expertise that will enable them to implement their own business plan.

Although the MBA welcomes students with a wide variety of experience and from many different countries, they often share similar values and qualities such as high intellectual ability, work experience, determination and the courage to undertake full-time study in a foreign language.

Many are culturally aware, and above all have the potential to be the leaders of the future. Graduates have found careers as financial controllers, investment analysts, management consultants, financial advisors, project managers, brokers and traders, account managers, business development managers, internal auditors, management accountants, bank managers, treasurers, CEOs of their own businesses…
