About the Program

The MSc in Finance program prepares students for the challenges of the financial market and financial management and also covers the main challenges of the area of digital business transformation in the general business and financial environment.

The program consists of the following blocks:

1) Methodological module provides a solid theoretical knowledge of financial market.

2) A core finance module integrates the most important financial management areas like risk management, corporate finance, investments, financial institutions, financial markets, and financial technologies

3) Core non-finance module includes courses from the fields closely related to financial management like accounting, law, advanced topics in financial markets and corporate finance. That is completed with4) elective courses from other management areas.

The teaching methodology focuses on a combination of lectures (to provide the necessary theoretical knowledge required) and seminars (where students can apply the theory in practice). Seminars include interactive discussions, group work, student projects and presentations, case studies and other financial problem related issues.

Why choose the MSc in Finance?

Our experiences concerning job opportunities of students graduated from our former (five-year-long) M.Sc. programs are very favorable. Our graduates can easily establish themselves in a job, both at financial institutions and at non-financial companies in the private sector and institutions in the public sphere are keen on employing them.

Organizations interested in employing our graduates for planning, analyzing and evaluating their financial activities; for preparing their financial decisions; and for coordinating and organizing their processes are primarily economic entities (enterprises, banks, insurance companies, financial institutions, consulting firms), institutions of the government budget (ministries, regulatory institutions, local authorities/governments, organs of the revenue office) and non-profit organizations.

Our graduates possess competences that are essential in business life (knowledge concerning economics, methodology, business and markets; competence in computer skills; command of languages; problem-solving and analytical skills etc.), and beside these they have specific professional knowledge (relating to finance, accounting and taxation) and specific practical skills. These skills and knowledge can be made good use of both in Hungary and abroad.

 

About the Department of Finance:

The Department of Finance is part of the Institute of Finance, Accounting and Business Law at Corvinus University of Budapest. Though organizationally we belong to the Corvinus Business School, we also hold courses for students of the Faculty of Economics. This reflects our philosophy: we consider finance as a science being a part of both „economics” and „business”, this way we intend to bridge the gap between academic rigor and professional standards.

Our educational activity covers the following areas: 

·         corporate finance

·         financial institutions

·         business valuation

·         asset pricing and financial markets

·         risk management

·         financial mathematics

 

 

Our department is one of the leading academic departments of finance in Hungary. We have been teaching the most up-to-date knowledge to our students for more than a decade. Our staff took part in translating numerous mainstream textbooks in the field of finance that are considered international standards and taught worldwide. Our curriculum is aligned to the requirements of reputed international professional bodies and organizations such as the CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) and the EFFAS (European Federation of Financial Analysts’ Societies). Our main objective is to pass on high-level theoretical and practical knowledge. The feedback we receive of our alumni’s outstanding performance in both the academic and corporate sphere’s including banks, national organisations or consulting companies, bolsters our approach in education: a focus on independent problem-solving skills, and sculpting the creative mind to conduct innovative research. We are proud of the fact that the brightest and most dedicated students attend our programs at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Our department boasts with an alumni who constitute a significant proportion of professionals working in the financial sector of Hungary.


Research 

The Department of Finance at CUB is one of the leading academic departments of finance in Hungary. Research activities fall into three distinct, yet interconnected areas: corporate finance and valuation, risk management and market microstructure. The international outreach of our research is highlighted by the Annual Financial Market Liquidity Conference (AFML) organised annually by our department since 2010. We also organise research seminars and lectures in finance open to a broader audience of students, alumni and the larger public. The Corvinus University of Budapest inaugurated its financial laboratory (FinLab) on 21 November 2013. The laboratory hosts 12 Bloomberg terminals, a widely used professional trading and data resource in the finance industry.
