Documentation

The Master “Financial Market and Risk Evaluation” (FiRE) offers theoretical and practical insights on financial markets.


Theoretical insights are all the more needed after the great financial crisis of 2008 that has shown that blind applications of valuation and risk management models could prove unproductive. These theoretical insights are acquired by students with the instruction offered by world-class academics who have contributed to build them. 

Practical insights are also offered to ensure that students are accustomed to the functioning and vocabulary of financial markets, the strategies of investors and the pricing of financial assets, with a particular emphasis on risk measurement and evaluation.


Students pursuing the Financial Market and Risk Evaluation track will also learn to:

  • Use modeling and computational tools to price financial assets ;
  • Understand the functioning of financial markets ;
  • Identify and manage operational and financial risks.

 

The programme is entirely taught in English.

The FIRE Master is a great programme. It strikes the perfect balance between theoretical and applied finance, including useful tools in the industry such as VBA programming and Excel techniques. Another strong point about it is that professors come from both academia and the financial industry, making the programme very appealing for someone who wants to become a practitioner with a strong technical background. I joined the programme after completing the first year of the Master in Economics at TSE and would definitely recommend this programme to others.
