Master of Science in Banking and Finance

!! We wish to point out that the curriculum of the MSc in Banking & Finance is currently going through a restructuring, including both the academic content and the pricing. The master will also be extended to two years.  This will only be finalised end of January 2019, and will be effective for the academic year September 2019-2020.  We suggest you consult our internet pages again beginning of February 2019 to learn the exact changes. At that time, the inscription procedure for the next academic year will also start.!!

The Master of Science in Banking and Finance is the flagship programme of the Luxembourg School of Finance. It offers a comprehensive curriculum encompassing both classic and more recent areas of the finance discipline as well as the principal functions of banking.

The cross-functional curriculum provides a dynamic framework of analytical skills and intellectual tools, providing an integrated approach to solving complex banking and financial problems.  In addition to a broad range of core courses, students may select one of three streams representing mainstream areas in which they can obtain a deeper knowledge.

Students study with the School’s permanent faculty.  The diverse faculty, which maintain close ties to the Luxembourg banking and financial community, engage in leading research and advance banking and financial knowledge and practices on many fronts including market valuation of financial instruments, risk management and behavioural finance. In addition, some invited professors from renowned finance faculties of other universities teach selected courses.

The programme is ideally suited to students seeking a career in corporate finance, asset and wealth management, banking and related fields.  While the majority of incoming students have a prior academic background in economics or business studies, many come from fields such as applied sciences or law.

Programme Formats

The programme is offered in both full-time and part-time formats with a start in the autumn. Enroll online

  • The full-time format begins in September and finishes in June of every year, followed by an obligatory internship.  Classes are generally in full-day block format and are held on one or more weekdays (Monday to Friday) during every week of the academic semester.  Note that  the days vary each week in terms of the day(s) of the week and number of days.
  • The part-time format involves following classes with the students of the full-time format, but for only half the courses each year.  Classes are generally in full-day block format and are held on one or more weekdays (Monday to Friday) of every week of the academic semester.  Note that  the days vary each week in terms of the day(s) of the week and number of days.  Part-time students do not generally complete an internship, but earn equivalent credits through additional courses or a Master’s Thesis.

    Part-time students who are employed are encouraged to consult with their companies concerning their obligation to attend class at irregular days of the week during each academic semester.  These are published in a semester calendar at the beginning of each semester.
