The Master’s degree programme in Finance focuses on asset and wealth management, risk management and international finance. The programme is unique thanks to its research orientation, a strong international approach, the CFA- and GARP-oriented curriculum and its personal study environment. Around forty students from all over the world are admitted every year. The programme provides insights into current research topics in finance. It also helps students to strengthen their competencies in scientific methodologies through the completion of research projects. Practice-oriented MasterLAB modules enhance teamwork and leadership skills. In addition, excursions and educational travel as well as the opportunity to spend a semester abroad deliver insights into different cultures and international financial markets.
The programme is modularly structured and lectures usually take place three days a week, with occasional lectures on a Saturday. The entire programme is taught in English. There is a strong emphasis on teamwork within small groups, which ensures exceptionally close contact between lecturers and students.

Graduates have excellent career prospects and are qualified for a wide range of leadership and expert positions in the financial services industry or in the financial departments of internationally operating businesses. Liechtenstein’s unique strategic position also helps our Master’s students to obtain easier access to the Swiss and European financial labour market.
We educate young professionals with a unique mindset. Liechtenstein is not only embedded in a customs and monetary union with Switzerland but is also a member of the European Economic Area. Liechtenstein therefore acts as a bridge between the European Union and Switzerland, the biggest Wealth Management market in the world. This specialist know-how, essential for understanding and managing international and cross-border oriented services, plays an integral part in our graduate programme in Finance.
Upon graduation, students will be highly qualified for a career in finance – for example in financial risk management, asset, investment and wealth management, international financial management and corporate finance, portfolio management, financial engineering, product development and research projects.
