The MSc in Finance program truly offers a unique international learning experience in one of the most desirable locations in the world. The ability to tailor your program to your interests, the small class sizes and lectures from professionals coming from leading positions in major financial institutions, all set the scene for an unparalleled learning experience. In addition, IUM offers you the opportunity to personally interact with some of Monaco’s most renowned individuals within the finance industry through various events.
IUM also has a very proactive Career Services Department which helped me find my current position as a junior sales trader here in Monaco. Through the knowledge gained at IUM, I am able to trade and add value every day for clients running major Hedge Funds around the world. Before attending IUM, I lived and studied in London and I often had people telling me that London equals finance. Today, I would argue that IUM and Monaco provide you with the ideal tools needed to build a career anywhere.

”For my final year of study, I chose IUM for the combination of high-level knowledge and concrete financial experience thanks to a well-designed program as the MSc in Finance. The courses were focused on both theoretical and practical works with individual/group projects realized under constraints. Thanks to the small size of the class each of us was able to have a unique interaction with the faculty. Moreover, the multiculturalism environment and open mind of the students were very enjoyable. This specialization in Financial Markets has enabled me to get the right skills to be hired by one the largest international bank. I am now Junior Risk Control Analyst at Barclays Bank PLC in Monaco.“

After three years at Bocconi university in Milan, I decided to enroll into the IUM MSc in Finance in order to specialize in Private Banking. The different environment and teaching method were challenging at first, but also very rewarding. I believe this Master of Science program is the optimal mix of theory and practice you need before starting your career. Additionally, IUM gives the students multiple opportunities to get in contact with local and foreign professionals and build their own network. In my case, thanks to my Wealth Management professor, Mr. Thierry Crovetto, I was able to find an internship at a local asset management company, where I am still working today.
