Master in Wealth Management

Internship 

As an integral part of the course, full-time students are required to perform an internship for a period of not less than four weeks.  Students are free to seek the internship that suits their interests and objectives, provided that the nature of the internship is in relation to wealth management.  Students may start their internship in June and elect to finish by the end of the Summer Semester (mid-September).  Alternatively, they may elect to extend the course for an additional semester and thereby extend their internship until the end of the Winter Semester (mid-February) of the following year. 

The LSF provides assistance in finding an internship with a private bank or non-bank financial services company of the Luxembourg financial centre.  A wide variety of internships representing a range of different business activities in the financial centre are available.

The student must produce an Internship Report during or at the end of the internship.  Although firms are not required to do so, almost all internships are remunerated.  The University provides standard tri-part-time contracts for purposes of the internship.

For students with substantial prior professional experience, there is an option to perform a Business Field Project rather than an internship.  This may be performed in the context of a normal full-time employment contract.  The student must produce a Business Field Project Report during or at the end of the Project.  This report is similar to an internship report in structure and report.

Internships and Business Field Projects are supervised by an LSF faculty member.  More details are provided in a guidelines document.

Master’s Thesis

As an integral part of the course, part-time students are required to submit a Master’s Thesis on a subject of their choice related to wealth management.

Master’s Theses are supervised by an LSF faculty member.  Students may select their Thesis Supervisor from an LSF faculty member or an outside professor.  More details are provided in a Master’s Thesis guidelines document.
