The TSM Master in Finance among the top 10 Masters in Finance that are EFMD-Accredited worldwide

The European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) Accreditation is the most thorough programme accreditation system for business and management programmes with an international perspective. According to EFMD: "The TSM Master in Finance is a robust academic programme with a commendable connection with the world of practice. The programme demonstrates several examples of best practices among which the use of ILOs to develop the provision but also to conduct programme delivery and assessment. The programme also offers a unique academic approach combined with the purpose of applying knowledge and skills to solving real-life problems and practical learning opportunities through internships."

The Master in “Finance and Information Technology” (FIT) provides students with skills in both finance and financial IT.

 

Financial technology, also known as “fintech”, aims at proposing solutions to all actors involved in financial decisions, such as financial institutions, firms and single individuals using specialized IT tools.

The Master provides a rigorous preparation in all fields of finance together with a solid knowledge of the most recent IT tools such as business intelligence and blockchain. This double competence prepares students for jobs both in corporate finance and financial markets where an understanding of IT is essential. Through practical cases and projects, students develop complementary practical skills like problem solving, communication and business etiquette.


Students pursuing the Finance and Information Technology track will learn to:

  • Analyze and exploit big data to extract information to take financial decisions;
  • Implement and upgrade business processes which collect information to support company’s decisions;
  • Design and implement business intelligence systems applied to financial contexts.

This Master is a programme in partnership with Toulouse School of Management (TSM) and Toulouse School of Economics (TSE).

TSM offers theoretical, high-quality instruction with significant relevance to the industry. During the internships I did for my Master in Finance, employers showed a strong interest in this programme.
