A CFA charter is a strong asset to be recruited in the Finance industry: it shows a good command of generic financial concepts, an ability to work hard and differentiates from other candidates. A level 1 candidacy is often required to apply to top jobs in I-banks and Investment Management (IM) firms.

This MSc provides a theoretical foundation for a broad range of jobs: both in corporate (financial analysis, equities) and markets (quantitative skills, financial instruments, portfolios), while helping to maintain high ethical standards.

The IM industry offers many employment opportunities: new regulation forced the separation of investment and research functions — creating a need for additional analysts — while the need for investment managers increases with an aging population
