Are you enthusiastic about research? Genuinely intellectually curious? Do you like reading and debating? Do you want to be able to answer new questions and love to travel and meet new people? Are you particularly fond of Finance? If so, the MSc in Finance is right for you. The MSc is the first year of the TSM Doctoral Programme which is an EFMD-accredited rigorous international training. It combines the best of practice, theory, qualitative & quantitative tools and reality-based education. You will make presentations, organise seminars, and contribute to management and academic decisions. It also offers high quality teaching and a truly multicultural work environment with students coming from all over the world.

Our MSc offers the excellence training needed for international and French university graduates interested in pursuing a career in research.

We deliberately keep the MSc small to allow you to work closely with your supervisor, interact with other faculty members who will be happy to act as sounding boards, and gain teaching experience. Students who wish to continue towards their PhD beyond the MSc year, can apply for one of approximately 10 annual University of Toulouse Capitole (UTC) doctoral contracts that finance three years of PhD work (MPhil 1-2-3).

The doctoral contracts are awarded based on academic merit and research project suitability.
