"Several dimensions characterise the MSc Financial Markets & Investments.
Firstly, I’d emphasise the quality of the students. They bring deep and diverse analyses to the cases taught during courses.
The second point reinforces the first: the international profile of students who are able to transfer easily between SKEMA’s international campuses during the year to gain an even better experience from the MSc. Also, the sharing of different international experiences and backgrounds gives students a huge advantage for their future careers.
The last key dimension characterising the MSc Financial Markets is the balance between theory and practice, which is exemplified in the teaching body who have strong academic and/or strong professional experience. These teachers, leveraging the simulation tools on offer, provide an excellent environment for students to reach their goals."
