Study type Taught


The complex financial times we live in demand greater modeling techniques and a deeper understanding of financial data. The Master in Finance at the Barcelona GSE is designed to meet these challenges. The Barcelona GSE Finance Program gives you the strong modeling techniques, econometric tools, and advanced coding skills needed for the top jobs in banking, consulting and fintech.
The program is built around three pillars:
Concepts: acquire an in-depth understanding of the theory of finance
Modeling: learn how to construct and implement financial models
Data analysis: apply econometric techniques to analyse complex financial data
Our graduates excel in the ability to design and implement complex financial models; have a strong understanding of the theory; and know how to program (R and Python).
Our graduates can tackle data and modelling intensive tasks, and can thus work in a wide range of areas, including consulting, risk management, derivatives trading, portfolio and investment management, fintech, and central banks.
This program requires that all entering students be able to show a solid academic background in mathematics and statistics. Proof will be required showing an undergraduate degree with a substantial number of quantitative subjects, or GRE to demonstrate quantitative ability, however the GRE is not mandatory for this program.
