Economics and Finance

The academic program for the master’s degree in Economics and Finance allows graduates to acquire the necessary expertise in mathematical and statistical tools as well as the advanced knowledge needed for a successful national or international career in the economic and financial field, with special emphasis on the role of markets and financial intermediaries. Economics and Finance provides cutting edge preparation in techniques for price formation, securities trading, management of corporate finance and extraordinary transactions as well as the ability to understand the more meaningful connections with existing prospects and trends in macroeconomics and international finance.

The Department of Economics and Finance also offers students the chance to study with a partner university through the Double Degree with Universidade Nova de Lisboa or with the Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management, or by participating in the QTEM Program.

The theoretic and analytic preparation offered by the degree program is highly requested by numerous actors in the field of finance including investment banks, the financial services sector and both international and national institutions working in economic research.
