Optionally, during Semester 4 our students may study abroad with one of our international partner universities.

Capital Markets
This concentration was introduced in response to the high impact of the economic commotion in the modern investment banking sector. Students are challenged with advanced quantitative products and complex portfolio management exercises further developing their ability to assess and predict market patterns and trends. Students are able to understand and develop complex financial solutions and to perform in the high-speed capital markets environment.

Corporate Finance
With a focus on valuation methods, M&A, investment banking and financial intermediation, this concentration prepares students for handling the interaction between financial markets and corporates. Financial decision making has an ever-increasing impact in the corporate world and thus this concentration prepares students for these challenges e.g when working in both reputable banks and small investment boutiques or corporates.

Risk Management

Expert leadership is crucial throughout the persistent global financial crisis to manage the wide range of financial risks. In-depth exposure to the different risk types and complex risk management processes prepares students for a career in any risk-related area including strategy and national/ international regulators, such as the European Central Bank. The concentration is supported by the Frankfurt Institute for Risk Management and Regulation (FIRM).

The Frankfurt Institute for Risk Management and Regulation (FIRM)

FIRM will provide some scholarship funding and invites students to executive talks with leading representatives in Risk Management and to participate in the FIRM alumni initiative.

Financial Accounting & Advisory
This concentration provides students with the necessary skills to pursue a career in the finance function of large corporations, consulting/ in-house consulting as well as M&A advisory. Students are not only exposed to the accounting behind financial transactions in M&A, but are challenged to go a step further and use this knowledge in decision making and financial advisory. This is done through solving restructuring issues in managerial accounting as well as working on case studies and projects which typically include guest speakers from external firms.
