The Master “Financial Markets 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.

By the end of the Master in Finance, students will be able to:

  • - Know basic institutional and regulatory framework of finance in organisations and markets ;
  • - Understand the conceptual foundations and analytical methods in finance ;
  • - Apply analytical methods in finance to solve practical problem encountered by corporations, financial institutions and markets ;
  • - Critically assess the drivers of contemporary financial issues ;
  • - Incorporate ethical dimension and implications for sustainability in financial decisions ;
  • - Communicate effectively in oral and written form ;
  • - Work in team ;
  • - Solve complex problems.

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

The FIRE Masters 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 program very appealing for someone who wants to become a practitioner with a strong technical background. I joined the programme after completing the first year Masters in Economics at TSE and would definitely recommend this programme to others.
