MSc in Finance Hedge Funds and Private Equity specialization: a link from Monaco to the world!

Congratulations to Miguel de Morais Sarmento Matos, MSc in Finance 2017, who is now working as Corporate Finance – Senior Analyst at Moore Stephens, Lisbon, Portugal.

Hedge Funds and Private Equity specialization“IUM is a great business school with fantastic and qualified professors. I did my MSc in Finance major in Hedge Funds and Private Equity. Most of IUM´s professors did their PhD studies or MBAs from Top Business Schools and universities. Within the program many faculty also have their own professional activities. They own consulting firms specialized in several sectors, from Asset Management, Venture Capital, until Strategic consulting, Macroeconomics, etc. Also, a few are working within the banking sector in Monaco.

As a consequence, our finance classes are not only based on theoretical concepts but also on very practical applications. We got the most current insights on M&A, Private Equity, Hedge funds, Asset Management and Trading. With the acquisition of such knowledge one can leverage Monaco’s unique position to target the best investment funds in the Principality and the rest of the world.

Monaco is a great choice for living and studying. Besides our finance classes, IUM organized/invited Hedge Funds managers, Bankers (from institutions such as Barclays and UBS) and many others recognized speakers. I really enjoyed my time in Monaco and one day I plan to come back.”
