FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I have to be good at mathematics in order to apply for an MSc in Finance?

Finance needs an analytical bent of mind. You should love numbers and have a feel for them, but you don’t have to be a maths expert. Sometimes a preparatory course in quantitative maths is required to ensure you’ll have all your chances to succeed.

Is it easy to find an internship?

Through Career Services, MSc students can count on personalized support throughout the career orientation and job search processes: tailored tools to successfully enter the job market and have the chance to meet major employers in Monaco and abroad. It organizes the annual International Business Days, where companies look for suitable profiles.

What kind of jobs can I expect to find upon graduation?

It all depends on your specialization and elective courses. If Hedge Funds and Private Equity make you tick, then investment and consultancy firms are one among many options. When you bend towards Private Banking and International Wealth Management, family offices, international banks, and financial advisory agencies will be interested in you.

Alumni

IUM MSc in Finance alumni are now working in famous Private Banks, wealth management boutiques and family offices, financial advisory companies, asset management/ investment firms.

What I found unique about the MSc in Finance, Hedge Funds & Private Equity was the excellent combination of quantitative and qualitative studies. Moreover, the small size of the class enabled us to interact with each other and professors on an entirely different level. Each lecture brought new perspectives leading to a tremendously steep learning curve.
Most importantly, what I believe sets this very demanding program apart from its peers is the practical focus; literally, every module involved practical work such as advanced valuation modeling on Excel. The MSc in Finance at IUM is, in my view, the best possible preparation for a challenging and demanding career in the financial services industry.
